Greg Conlon has a razor sharp mind and is one of the most fiscally responsible person around. The other two candidates are running to give their side of the highly polarized town council a majority. They are running, not to serve the residents of Atherton, but to perpetuate the power of the side they are aligned with.

Conlon is the only candidate who is not aligned to either side. Instead, he is aligned with the residents of Atherton. If you vote for Conlon you are voting to refocus the currently dysfunctional town council to be responsive to your needs.

Isn't it about time that we elect a selfless, humble, and assiduous person of proven experience and accomplishments who will listen to us, work for our best interests, and reunite our community?

Rick DeGolia is a fair minded candidate, very smart with a keen interest in Atherton. He is running to bring balance to the Town Council and to represent residents.
It is not a correct characterization of Greg Conlon as the only candidate interested in toning down the polarization on the council and getting the town's work done.

If Greg Was rasor sharp why would he blindly say his #1 priority is to protect the APD from outsourcing without even understanding under what conditions and savings it could be accomplished under. Seems that a sharp business mind would want to know the facts before making his mind up.
