Great, more hired goons to intimidate little old ladies around town to prevent opposition to the O'Brien family of projects. Better start those self-defense classes at Little House quick!

If the Election results are any indication, it takes more than money to change the political environment in Menlo Park.

O'Brien hired Olson Consulting to confront the petition signature gatherers and dissuade signers - a fatal move on their part; it just made the referendum effort stronger.

It is my hope the O'Brien group would put their time, efforts, and money toward creating projects that benefit, not divide the community.

Thank goodness the backroom developer deals of Winkler, Duboc and Jellins are a thing of the past!
