Hope the Almanac archives this and fact checks it against the state of things one and two years from now, IF the Cary Wiest/Elizabeth Lewis ticket wins the Atherton election.
1. The parcel tax for Atherton residents goes up to over $3,000 per year.
2. Police Chief Ed Flint "retires" (actually is fired). He is replaced with Sherman Hall IV, the son of "Sherman III" who is a leader in the Wiest and "No on F" movements.
3. Atherton withdraws from the library JPA and takes the library money to give to the new police station/cops.
4. Atherton cops are the only police officers in California who have not had to give any salary, pension, or benefit concessions. This all ties into #1.
