The Puppeteer: Elizabeth Lewis
The Funeral: The end of Carlson's political career in Atherton.
Charles Marsala announced he's not running for council again. Jerry Carlson should also announce he's not running this year (I won't say "again" since Carlson never did actually run in the first place).
With Marsala, at least you know what you're dealing with. Carlson has no spine, no political opinions of his own, and no ability to come to his own conclusions on things. He's just a chameleon.
Now that he's been shunned in his reelection efforts and no town leader will help him run a campaign, he's turned to the only person who will help him: Elizabeth Lewis.
Do we really need another council member Elizabeth Lewis controls?
