MTnView does NOT need one more housing unit.... We are FULL... Why in hell does our council constantly try to cram more people into our city.. For gosh sakes, we can NOT bring the whole damn world into MtnView....

Let us concentrate on quality of life here, spend our dollars on maybe supporting our LOCAL students, on our events in the city, on LOCAL items....

Luv my city...
