With ballots in the mail and the first vote centers opening in three days, the Los Altos City Council race is heating up.

Incumbents Anita Enander and Neysa Fligor and challenger Pete Dailey are vying for two open seats on the five-member council in the Nov. 8 election.

It seems like Anita did effectively vote against parklets according to this https://www.losaltosonline.com/news/downtown-parklets-to-continue-indefinitely-los-altos-council-votes-3-2-for-new-dining-program/article_efdd29ee-57c5-11ec-8b8f-f33c1f0f0022.html "The program passed on a 3-2 vote, with Mayor Neysa Fligor and councilmembers Sally Meadows and Jonathan Weinberg in favor. Vice Mayor Anita Enander and Councilmember Lynette Lee Eng dissented."

Mayor Enander wasn't voting against parklets, she was voting against making them permanent without any follow-up studies. The council voted unanimously in favor of her subsequent motion to do a study in 12 months. To me that's a perfect example of how she improves actions taken by our council.

CORRECTION: According to the article, Lynette Lee Eng offered the subsequent motion to perform a study after 12 months. I recalled the motion being made by Anita. My apologies to all.

Will you be posting my previous comments or will you censor them because you endorsed Fligor and Dailey?

Want to see dishonest campaigning at its finest? Take a look at the half-page ad by the "Los Altos Community Voices" in last week's Crier. The group claims that Anita voted against parklets when, in fact, she supported parklets but just wanted a study done after one year. They claim she "Does not believe human activities are the cause for global warming" when, in fact, she has made it clear that humans contribute to climate change. They go on to claim she has voted against many issues that have come before the council when they know that every council member has voted against issues during their term. We all know that major policy making usually takes many sessions, many revisions, many compromises, and many votes with an end result that is better than the original draft. Anita Enander is usually that voice of reason who proposes well thought out changes that make the end product better. Right now we have a fairly balanced council. We need to re-elect Anita Enander to maintain that balance.

I just wish Pete Dailey and Bill Sheppard would stop lying about Mayor Enander's voting record and her paid advertisement. Everyone hates negative campaigning but Dailey knows it's the only thing he's got because he has zero experience and is out of step with LA residents regarding 5-story buildings downtown and the elimination of clean-burning gas appliances. Dailey supporter, Bill Sheppard, is spreading disinformation that he knows is incorrect. Los Altos voters, don't be fooled. Vote for a candidate with a proven track record. Vote for a candidate who truly listens to her constituents. VOTE FOR ANITA ENANDER.
