Bohannon sends out vicious hit pieces against Chuck Bernstein
Original post made by Morris Brown, Menlo Park: Park Forest, on Oct 15, 2010
To view go to:
He attacks Bernstein claiming Chuck was out to 'sabotage' his project and claims this was revealed at the Candidates forum. Here is actually what Chuck said at the forum:
“Had we voted on that [the city’s new child care center], I think people would have been committed more to the outcome. I do applaud the Council for putting the Gateway project on the ballot. As I think is obvious here, I am not a supporter of that project, but what I pledge to both Mr. Bohannon and the people of Menlo Park, is that I will abide by whatever that vote shows: no more sabotage, no more
delay—move forward on the next things we have to deal with”
How Bohannon could stretch that statement into a “Bernstein is out to sabotage his project” is hard to believe.
In the other mailer, he then wants you to believe that the Menlo Park High School will lose $600,000. Hardly true, since the $600,000 is for the whole Sequoia High School district and MA High School is only one of the schools in the district and has only about 20% of the total students enrolled in the district.
Actually in this flyer Bohannon is recognizing that his earlier statement that 1.8 Million was going to the schools was in error --- really a blatant lie. So now he is down to using the right amount, but won’t reveal to what schools the money will be benefiting.
So David Bohannon has sunk into the “gutter” to attack Bernstein on Schools. Chuck has devoted must of his professional life on education. Look at his credentials.
So Menlo Park voters, realize what is going on here, and reject these mailers for what they are --- smear attacks on a really outstanding candidate for Menlo Park City council.
I'm proud to be supporting Chuck Bernstein for Menlo Park City Council.
While you’re at it, just Vote No on Measure T.
Chuck has issued a press release on this subject that can be found at:
