Other Voices: Carl Cahill’s record of accomplishment in LAH

The following is an open letter to Mayor Kavita Tankha and members of the Los Altos Hills City Council.

We, as previous mayors and council members, want to weigh in on City Manager Carl Cahill’s outstanding record of service to the town and emphasize the importance of his institutional memory in maintaining the unique character of Los Altos Hills.


Letters to the Editor: LAH trash, boardinghouses, fluvoxamine

Hills trash talks teach $6.4M lesson

In July 2018, Los Altos Hills City Manager Cahill formed a new garbage collection contract committee, but it spent the first six months just waiting for a requested quotation from GreenWaste. No effort was made to contact other companies. A significant price increase was expected, as GreenWaste had previously informed the town its existing contract was unprofitable.

Letters to the Editor: Support for restaurants, 'civil discourse'

Support Los Altos restaurants

Although Santa Clara County has just entered the red zone, which now allows 25% indoor dining, this pandemic will continue to exert strong financial pressure on our local restaurants for many months to come.

Other Voices: Housing bills pose dangers

Two bills currently moving toward passage in the California State Legislature could change the character of neighborhoods across the state. If passed, Senate bills 9 and 10 will remove local control of zoning regulations and allow multifamily units everywhere. Residents should oppose both proposals. If passed, neither one will solve the housing shortage, certainly not the shortage of affordable or low-cost housing.

Letters to the Editor: Bullied council member, mayor's leadership

Stop bullying council member

This an open letter to Kenan Moos, Justice Vanguard, the Town Crier and Los Altos Mayor Neysa Fligor.

Other Voices: Greater issues of racism remain unaddressed

The din surrounding the mention of the names of Kenan Moos and Los Altos City Councilmember Lynette Lee Eng is fueled by many individuals who are not willing to confront their own (gendered) racism.

Editorial: Lee Eng should reach out

Los Altos City Councilmember Lynette Lee Eng may think silence is golden when it comes to her now very public dispute with local Black youth leader Kenan Moos. But for the rest of us, the silence is deafening.
