Like your 10% inflation?

Thank Anna Eshoo. She’s the one who voted for the extra $6 trillion in spending the past several years.

Chris: For those of us "not in the know", what is your definition of:
"'Athertonization' of Portola Valley or Woodside"

Vote Rishi. It's time for change. Our district has punched way below its belt class for too long. From an innovation and economic perspective, this is one of the most influential districts in the country! Our representative is not. Far from it.

When was the last time Anna was on TV? What Silicon Valley causes has she fought for and won victories? What legislation has she actually authored herself (don't be fooled by the misleading "Anna is on it" mailers)? Why was the only social media post that she put out after the 2016 election an invitation to the inauguration? Ugh. Out of touch, to say the least. Why was her statement about taking pharma money so awful? Why does she even take PAC money?

"Loyal rank and file member" is not what the heart of Silicon Valley should be sending to DC. Our district should be sending a leader to Congress that could be a senator, a cabinet member, etc. some day. Please. We can do better.

As long as I can remember Steve Lublin has never really understood the Town of Woodside nor has he ever really given the Town any solid working ideas or input. Most of his ideas were far fetched at best.

In case you are unaware the inflation we are experiencing is happening world wide. It's not isolated to the US as the republicans would have us believe

Mr. Tanner's (He/Him) lowbrow comments about Steve Lubin are fabricated. Steve Lubin has done a tremendous job with many aspects for the Town of Woodside without monetary gain.
Mr. Tanner (He/Him) who is listed and hired as the Robert's Agent to plan out their parking structure, sure gets naughty points for not taking into account the 'safe routes to schools trail'.
The District 2 candidate that will keep the kids safe and out of traffic without kickbacks, is Steve Lubin!
