How to select a councilmember Nov. 8

The Los Altos City Council has five members; three seats will be vacant Nov. 8. We need to elect or re-elect three members out of six candidates.

All the candidates talk and promise a lot. It’s very confusing.

Enforce traffic rules beyond Election Day

A recurring complaint among residents is traffic.

Traditionally, when this has come up in past city council elections, the candidates agree that the problem is very real and something needs to be done. The day after the election, the subject magically disappears. Meanwhile, drivers speed through residential streets, run stop signs and lights, and drive through occupied crosswalks.

Let’s move on: City needs new ideas

Since reading the Town Crier’s Sept. 28 interviews with the Los Altos City Council candidates, I have been pondering why the city continues to debate the Hillview Community Center and the “future of downtown Los Altos.” These issues and school funding seem to be the only things that get discussed in our community.

Measure A (to rebuild Hillview Community Center) was defeated by a 71-29 percent margin last year. The downtown continues to grow modestly and is well on its way to continuing its growth path. These issues don’t need a lot of further debate. Isn’t it time to move on?
