Sorry to see Tom go, as he usually looked at the facts and and then made decisions, rather than imposing his personal beliefs.
Plastic bag ban is a perfect example - as he notes, unlike SF and some other cities, Mountain View does NOT have a significant problem with plastic bags getting into the bay. And the costs and risks of a ban in MV far outweigh the potential benefit.

Tom has been a great friend of Mountain View and a great City Councilman. I hope we elect many more like him. Thanks Tom for your service to us all.

Sorry Supporting Citizen, As I posted before, as Stevens Creek Adopters, our family and friends have pulled way too many plastic bags out of Stevens Creek, snagged on their way to the Bay. YES MV bags carelessly (or accidentally) tossed DO end up in the Bay...
