Is it hopeless to get some new blood involved in the town council government? Thanks to all who have served so long, but we seriously need some fresh perspectives.

Of all the communities in which I have lived Atherton is unique - for the vast majority of Atherton residents the Town government is so irrelevant that no one has even bothered to challenge the incumbent council members over the last eight years. As a consequence none of the five members of the Town Council have been elected by the citizens to their current term of service.

Without elections there is no accountability.

We get the government that we deserve.
