Bressler-Cline-Robinson - A Campaign by Anonymous Surrogates
Original post made by Dick Poe on Nov 7, 2006
Should voters believe anything from "Anonymous?"
I wish those who would express such strident opinions would have the courage of their convictions and use their real names. Could it be that this is part of the Big Labor / Stealth Surrogate / Attack, Misrepresent and Smear campaign which has been waged by Bressler, Cline and Robinson, and that these postings are coming from one of their eight campaign organizations rather than from a real "Student" or "Election Watcher?"
I note that the Almanac reported today that the Bressler-Cline-Robinson organizations have been showered with over $22,000 in union money in this election. I have no doubt that the final total will be far greater and that "in-kind" services like the outsiders walking our streets to drop literature will be massive. Those Staff Unions want to keep their generous perks, benefits, and pensions, and are willing to spend handsomely for them. We Menlo Park taxpayers are the ones who will ultimately pay, however.
Do we really want Council Members who are endorsed by the Unions and whose supporters are now "Anonymous?"
I'm voting for Lee Duboc, Mickie Winkler, and John Boyle who have run a relentlessly positive campaign by simply telling voters about a track record of remarkable success, who have stood up to the Unions, and who do not hide behind shadowy surrogates.

Mr. Poe - given how you've villified challengers to the status quo as well as their supporters, you shouldn't be surprised when residents don't want their names out there to be attacked personally. Not I!
I would like to point out that you have concocted an interesting but false theory here. From what I can tell, Vince Bressler was never endorsed by the unions, poltical parties (or their PACs), or by real estate interests. All 5 of his opponents did accept support from "special interests" . Yet you choose to lump him and only two others into some conspiracy.
Neither Bressler's supporters nor those of Cline and Robinson resorted to deceptive tactics like you and Menlo Park Matters did with fake mailers. These 3 guys seem more honorable than that.
Please stop taking politics into the gutter.

It's interesting to see in the morning's Mickie-Gram that she and Lee are the self-proclaimed champions of 'Quality of Life' in Menlo Park.
"It is only with a YES vote for leaders John Boyle, Councilwoman Lee Duboc, and Councilwoman Mickie Winkler will your city continue to serve and improve your quality of life."
It's actually Mickie Winkler and Lee Duboc that championed removing 'Quality of Life' from the city's mission statement when they took office. That's how they started wasting staff time instead of focusing on the real issues. Good riddance.
