Town Square

Post a New Topic

Cary Wiest has always stood for working with the community, and a transparent government.

Original post made by Navy Mans Son, Atherton: West of Alameda, on Sep 29, 2010

All I read about on the blogs pertains to a fresh start, transparency, new blood without baggage. We finally can vote for someone that fits the bill. With a proven track record in this area. Cary named after Cary Grant by his mother who passed away of cancer at a very young age was raised in a family of four other brothers on old fashion values. Old school work ethic. His father is a Navy Man, and later went into the Coast Guard. Protecting and serving others is in his blood. In his old community Cary Wiest, was President of Highlands Community Association Inc. For those of us that know the area it is a lot like Atherton with tons of trees, and surrounded by open space. The home Pam and him purchased after looking for over three years in Atherton is surrounded by trees.
What about bringing in new blood to council. Someone with no history with the town "will make all the difference in the world to the people of Atherton, and to the staff.

Someone who has years of experience with the Bay Area. Someone who has worked with other cities when it comes to issues. The High Speed Rail isn't only an Atherton problem. We need to work together with up coming issues with other towns, and communities. Check Cary Wiest's references. He has years of experience working with communities in this area. Vote for who can bring the most to the table with the least amount of baggage.

Cary Wiest (650) 357-7122

We need a fresh start.!!!

Mayor McKeithen said the council will also address the question of naming an interim manager. As for Mr. Johns' and Mr. Buckheit's proposals, she wasn't enthused.

"People have even said that I should be city manager," she said, "and I say absolutely not."

The town, she said, needs a manager "who has no baggage. ... All of us have too much baggage. And the propensity is always to bring even a little piece of that baggage forward.

"We need a fresh start," she said. Someone with no history with the town "will make all the difference in the world to the people of Atherton, and to the staff."

I just found out Cary's father passed away. So there is a correction Cary's father was a Navy Mans Son. My father was Navy and I was always raised once Navy alway Navy. Ask Cary for yourself call him. Find out the facts for yourself. Why he wants to make a difference, and what he stands for. Atherton needs his expertise. Keeping an open mind and giving Cary a chance gives Atherton a chance. I want change and accountability. Not another tax measure asking for more money.
