I would like it very much if each city council member would honestly answer this question, and to reply with something along the lines of "I believe I am representing my constituents" appears to be patently false, at least over the last year or so.
People are lined up addressing city council and imploring them to listen to their input, and yet, all these residents receive in return is akin to a slap across the face. No hyperbole.
I am so disappointed in our city council that I vacillate between putting my house on the market and moving out of the city and washing my hands of all of it...or sticking around and actively campaigning AGAINST certain members of council (should they choose to run again) while actively campaign FOR qualified candidates who are interested in slowing down this malignancy of development that is destroying the quality of life for the residents of this city.

The many homeowners of Cuesta Park strongly agree with those questions posed by Ms. Pinto. I an many of my neighbors are very disappointed in our City Council and their contrary initiatives - increased high density housing, removal of local small businesses, reducing lanes on El Camino Real and Castro.

Why did the Voice print this nonsense. Ms. Pinto comes off as a complete whiner with a condescending view of council based on her own ignorance. Council is not forcing small business out of town. It is landlords that own and decide the use of their land. There is plenty of parking downtown. Council studies the impact of all projects.
