Anyone will be better than the incumbent who allows the philosphy of "overcrowding is not a priority" in challenged neighborhoods in SM County. Well overcrowding is what fosters the drugs, gangs, vandalism, human trafficing and poor school achievement. Increased property values convert into higher tax revenue. This will make more businesses attractive to our area as their employees can find acceptable housing in neighborhood without blight.

There's a rumor that David Boesch might join the race. He would be much better than Kirten Keith or Andy Cohen.

Is this for real? As someone who's watched Andy's performances at Council meetings, I really can't tell.

Is it April 1st already? The almanac must be playing an April Fools Joke on us.

Mr Cohen looks like he has fallen asleep at council meetings. He occasionally seems confused as to the council topics. Andy cannot get reelected in November to the MP council, let alone as supervisor.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
