Mr. Gibboney
Would you please include this opinion piece in next Tuesdays print edition of the Almanac for your readers to consider?
Like many residents I did not attend the council meeting on this important matter believing as I had been TOLD, that this would be only the beginning of the Police Review Board discussion, and also I had the City Manager Gruber's assurance that a Council Majority was already supportive of the concept.
This was clearly a PLANNED deception and the public dialog needs a chance to continue with or without administrative interference or tricks.

Abolish the town of Atherton as an entity. Give it to the County, or give it back to the Indians. Nothing could be worse than what is happening there now. The town hall is the most dysfunctional looney bin I have ever seen.

Yaddi:
To your point- I'm not sure we could dump this mess back on to the Indians,
but the term "Pueblo" does appear on our charter--(as does Drainage District")
so maybe a good attorney could find a way to hold the Mexican land grantees accountable
