I read your article with great interest. With regard to former council members spanning the political spectrum I found out after talking with some neighbors that Mickie Winkler was mostly a centrist and not really identified as being at either end of the political spectrum.

With regard to Gail Slocum none of my neighbors seem to know who she is. Can you please advise as to where on the political spectrum Ms. Slocum is most closely identified to being?

@New_to_Menlo_Park brings up a good point. We hope (the Almanac) will avoid these generalizations in the future. The aforementioned former mayors have each been registered as both Democrat and Republican.

Editor's note: The editor -- not Kate Bradshaw -- inserted the reference to the two former councilwomen.
