Burlingame Mayor Produces Eye Pollution in Menlo Park

Original post made by Bob, Menlo Park: Central Menlo Park, on Mar 9, 2011

Terry Nagel, Burlingame mayor, is running for one of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors positions.
For some reason her staff thinks it's ok to post numerous campaign signs on private property along El Camino in Menlo Park. Fences around vacant parcels seem to be a favorite - the old Gaylord's rstaurant site and the old Cadillac dealership and also several light poles at the old Buick dealership.
It's not bad enough we have all these vacant properties on our main street but know we've got a candidate for county supervisor adding to the blight.
Terry, would you be doing the same in Burlingame?
Of cource if Terry has the written permission from these property owners then it's all kosher and please excuse this posting. But call me sceptic but I doubt that's the case.

Bob, yes, come to Burlingame - we have blight with badly designed signs that ironically say "there goes the neighborhood". These blight signs are against high speed rail.

Of course the "there goes the neighborhood" signs may stay up for years until high speed rail is built, whereas political election signs stay up for two/three months and most candidates responsibly remove their signs after the election.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
