I'm completely pleased to see Jim Armstrong get recognition for all the positive things he's done during his tenure here. Jim is very smart, affable, available and able to calm the turbulent waters. Maybe he & Paul Casey can do a rain dance together

Back in the "good old days" when I was on Council, one of my various failed initiatives was to get the cops to do a bicycle patrol substation at the Casa Esperanza Homeless shelter.

Stan Roden is the greatest choice to work with Dario Pini. Roden is careful, well prepared, assertive without being aggressive, and very very smart. The choice, whoever made it, is excellent.

The Council should undo this impropitious decision. Trade the roundabout for wasteful bulbouts, bricks, and silly moves like turning benches on State Street.

Time to think about removing the debris from Gibralter. Work around the Least Bells Vario nesting season. There are too many people & not enough water supply.
