NOTE: This letter from Christine Pixie Couch of Menlo Park was printed in the Oct. 11 issue of the Almanac.
A huge thank you to James R. Madison for his excellent guest opinion on the fields at Bayfront Park issue (Measure J) in the Oct. 4 Almanac.
Here is a voice of common sense. Mr. Madison described the limitations and enormous expense of that proposal perfectly. He lists the reasonable alternatives, all of which should have been seriously considered instead of the current proposal.
For reasons of fiscal responsibility, for the sake of appropriate fields for our young players, for saving the Measure T funds, Measure J must be defeated.
