Four years ago, six candidates vied for three seats on the Menlo Park City Council, and this year is no different. But breaking the candidates down into camps was easier back then. In 2010 about the only way to divvy up the candidates is by experience: Incumbents vs. Newcomers.

I recommend Chuck Bernstein for his fiscal responsibility. Mr. Bernstein has shown that he can be responsive to both the liberals and the conservatives in Menlo Park. Peter Ohtaki for his superlative experience in dealing with the Fire Board, his experience in disaster preparedness, and his even temperment-- Something the Council could really in light of one of the other candidates who is an incumbent and is incapable of controlling his temper. The third candidate I recommend is Russ Petersen. His is fiscally responsible and genuinely sees the folly of High Speed Rail and the need for pension reform.

We really neee some sweeping changes and this trio is the right ticket.
