Clark, McAlister to lead City Council in 2014

Original post made on Jan 8, 2014

Second-year council members Chris Clark and John McAlister were named Mountain View's mayor and vice mayor in unanimous City Council votes Tuesday night. Despite reports to the contrary, it was revealed that Clark -- age 30 -- is not, in fact, the youngest person to be elected to the council or serve as mayor.

Didn't McAlister once say (in the 2008 election) that Clark wasn't qualified to scoop ice cream at Baskin Robbins?

Well, this bad news and good news:

Chris Clark, like his predecessor John Inks, is a puppet of the out of town developers. He believes in unrestricted growth, and believes that what is good for the developers is good for Mountain View. Chris Clark does not care about the residents of Mountain View.

However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. John McAlister is slated to be Mayor in 2015. John, along with Jac Siegel are the only two members of the City Council who prefer wise development, listen to, and are concerned with the residents of Mountain View. With three members terming out at the end of 2014, we the residents of Mountain View, will have an opportunity to return control of Mountain View to Council Members who will represent us.

Take Back Mountain View!

I look forward to the change. I hope he puts a stop to all if the building that has made this once a small town in a Google driven city.
