Dear "Menlo Observer"
The "Slocum" to whom Ms. Keith and this Almanac article refers is Mr. Warren Slocum, a former County official who recently decided to run for Supervisor, not me, Gail SLocum, Former Mayor of Menlo Park.
Though we happen to have the same last name, Warren Slocum is not a direct relative of mine. And I am not running for office. So kindly keep your facts straight.
Also, please consider stating your name in future postings, and perhaps think about whether we all might not benefit from a greater measure of overall kindness in our community, including on Town Square. It's better for the overall level of discourse to maintain a higher degree of civility than the anonymous postings here too often appear to engender.

Kudos to Gail Slocum. Although I can't use my full name on this forum for complicated reasons, I do support the call for civility and getting one's facts straight. And by the way, where's the editor who's supposed to remove personal attacks?
