Letter: Reminiscing about good government in Atherton

It has been very interesting observing the political and management problems in Atherton through the years.

Granted the community was smaller when Howard Boren and Roy Hubbard were in charge, but government seemed much more efficient then. Still, it is hard to criticize today's council people, who are dedicated and give a great amount of time and effort to serve.

Unquestionably there is some shirt-pulling going on in a community this small, but these are intelligent people who should be above such pettiness. Maybe we are taking ourselves too seriously. Perhaps we should consider some other form of community management.
