How should Mountain View spend the $30 million it just received from Google?

Each week the Mountain View Voice heads downtown to ask passersby a question about a current event. This week, we asked people what they thought the city should do with the $30 million lump sum payment it just received from Google for the search giant's lease of a parcel in the Shoreline District. Watch the video to find out what people said.

Let's save the money, maybe use a little bit on building more parks.

They should pay themselves a heft increase in salaries and benefits as they have been doing it every year. If anything left over, they should use it to fund to get more undocumented aliens into our town and fund their welfare.
