Ahh, such wisdom! And right here on the peninsula! The burbs! This is the kind of enlightenment Menlo Park needs on our council. This sounds like someone who isn't stuck on the past or minutia. Do I dare to hope? Are there more like this woman?

Hey...I bet we could talk this woman into running for city council. Especially if we make sure that there's a BMR unit somewhere in town that has her name on it.

Ms. Lasensky doesn't present the true picture of where Mercedes Benz is headed. Apparently the true picture is:

"The Sun reports that Mercedes-Benz is aiming to phase out fossil-fuel powered vehicles over the next seven years, replacing its entire lineup with autos powered by electric motors, fuel cells, and biofuels."

Now if their new cars can burn biofuels, they can burn gasoline or blends. Search on Google and get the true picture.

When Elizabeth takes out her papers to run for council, lets see how many are going to support her. Some developers for sure, especially a local one, who is proposing the major project in the M-2 and she supports this project.
