I'm really confused. If David Bohannon's group isn't political in nature, or wasn't formed to influence the election, how is it that so many people didn't know about it until now? The article says Mike Gullard has attended a meeting, but how did he find out about it? Are the meetings by invitation only? Did the Almanac know about it? Probably not, or they would have reported on it sooner than this week.
This isn't adding up. Can we get some answers here?

If history has taught us anything, the election is bound to get nasty, if not exciting, by the time October rolls around.

Seems to me that the ideal leadership in Menlo Park would manage the city in a way that the community can respect. Then there would be less need for petitions and for "throw the bums out" movements. While I neither like the glacial pace of government nor all decisions made by the city, I think this council is doing a decent job. I'd rather get excited about other things than this election.
