Needs editing:

"Google said the bridges would help its headquarters to a new Google campus at NASA Ames. Parents in the city have also questioned whether enough of Google's property taxes are going to local schools, which lead to the City Council to recently fork over a larger share of Google's property tax revenues that get diverted into the city's Shoreline Fund."

Given the fact that they are in talks with Sunnyvale to build by Moffett Park I would be more worried that they just close down in Mtn. View and move to Sunnyvale if these meetings don't go their way.

Dear Google,
Most of are grateful for your presents in our community, and consider it an honor to have you here. We're more than willing to change our leadership, if that's what's needed to keep you.

Dear Google,

Please disregard the post above by vfree. Someone who does not know the difference between "presents" and "presence" will never be allowed to speak for me, so when they say "Most of us" and "We" what they really mean is "me" and "I".
