Traffic in Woodside has been getting worse. Does anyone know why there is now consistently a backup coming into Woodside from 280 most weekday mornings? It often stretches from CaƱada Road all the way to 280. Where are these people going?

It used to be that backups like this only occurred on warm weekend mornings, as people headed to the beach.

In 2014, Dave Tanner, Anne Kasten, Peter Mason and then mayor Tom Shanahan sunk an ongoing effort to provide safer routes for kids. In November Woodside will be well rid of all four of these council members and Deborah Gordon as well. This should be a huge opportunity for free, new, thoughtful, open governance. But the community is not stepping up to even run for all the open council seats. These 5 names - and former council member Dave Burow - are why: they created a culture of backroom dealing and listening only to the loudest voices in the room, they operated under no specific ethical principles, and they disdained their volunteers.
