Letter: Why I'm voting for Chuck Bernstein

Menlo Park needs to elect City Council members who will help us move past the partisan politics that have divided our community for many years.

We need a council that will objectively assess projects based on thorough independent analyses and real community feedback. I believe that Chuck Bernstein will be that kind of council member.

My experience with Chuck is that he approaches new issues with an open mind, listens to both sides, and actively seeks out all available information before coming to a conclusion. The fact that Chuck's signs are on the lawns of people with very divergent political views shows that I am not alone in this opinion.

While I do not always agree with Chuck, I am supporting him because I know that he will do his homework and come back with thoughtful, independent and practical ideas.
