This is an excellent profile of Mike Martello. He's done an outstanding job on every issue I've ever been involved with. I wish him well in retirement.

Good riddance. The man is a bully.
Come on - a Mountain View retirement income plus double dip with Los Gatos
and recall the controversial matter of Martello & Pam Read (now his wife) regarding the
Foothill Disposal contract.

What was the name of the attorney hired to (pretend to) investigate whether Martello was involved in increasing the amount the City of Mountain View would pay Foothill Disposal (headed by his married girlfriend Pamela Read)?
