Measure J is on the ballot for only one reason, to create a wedge between challengers to the incumbent slate and play field proponents.
Inappropriate e-mails have been sent out using the official e-mail lists of various kids sports leagues around the city - naming the candidates and their positions on Measure J. The implication is clear, the incumbent slate supports playing fields. The challengers don't.
However, challengers Robinson and Bressler have kids that use the play fields in Menlo Park. Cline and Robinson are on the parks and recreation committee. Bressler is on the AYSO board. Robinson is an AYSO soccer referee and Bressler is an AYSO coach.
These are people who care about play fields in Menlo Park and understand the real issues.
Menlo Park is not well served by a slate of incumbents who bring us wedge politics that obscure and confuse the truth.
