How to select a councilmember

How to select a councilmember in the Nov. 8 election:

The Los Altos City Council has five members. Three seats are vacant. We need to elect or re-elect three of the six candidates running.


Letters to the Editor

Voting is a personal responsibility

In his Sept. 14 letter to the editor (“Take a stand on presidential election”), Michael Rappaport criticizes the Town Crier’s decision to not endorse/recommend a presidential candidate.

I applaud the Town Crier for saying, “You’re on your own,” because, in truth, that is how it should be. I dislike publications suggesting how I/we should vote. They have no knowledge of my (and your) personal views of, for example, government’s role in society. I consider it my job to perform the due diligence and analysis required to make an informed decision.

Credit Mordo for project compromise

The Town Crier’s Aug. 31 article on 4880 El Camino Real (“Los Altos agrees in principle to 5-story El Camino project”) gives one the impression that Jeff Taylor, the developer, offered to lower the height of his building: “Ultimately, Taylor’s offer of a 4-foot height decrease won the council over.”
