Letter: Gateway project doesn't need extra hurdles

Vince Bressler (see last week's guest opinion on the Bohannon project) has forgotten that he is a member of the Menlo Park Planning Commission, not a member of the Menlo Park Non-Planning Commission.

This article is obviously from the mind of someone who is contemplating running for the Menlo Park City Council. Well, I for one, will vote against him.

Mr. Bohannon is far from my favorite person, but he has the right to build on his property without being hamstrung by a number of taxes designed to keep his project from being profitable.

I don't know how long Mr. Bressler has lived here but I have lived in and around Menlo all of my life and I would welcome Mr. Bohannon's project and the fair and legal revenues it would bring to the city.
