Good job Klein and Yeh. You guys have right on the nose. ''Public perception''
Spoiled Nancy Shepherd's proposal to give free ipads to her and her friends is bull crap.
I also bet the clerks office estimate of savings is way off.

It's already doomed to fail. Or at least be more trouble then it's worth. Since it states council members can elect to use other devices, such as a laptop or other tablet device. How will this work with out a headache? Does the ida of compatibility come to mind?

I sure hope the palo alto online prints who paid and who took the free option.
