The deadline to submit opening arguments for and against the two measures on the city ballot was July 23. No argument was submitted FOR the measure proposed by former Mountain View City Councilmember John Inks and a real estate salesman that opponents have called the "sneaky repeal" of the city's limited residential rent control. The issue then arose: will the two official proponents withdraw the measure - which can be done under a state Elections Code section that just took effect this year: section 9266.5 - at least 88 days before the election. Time is running out. In other news, a 9th potential candidate for 4 seats on the 7-member City Council has filed a notice of intent to run: Paul Roales. The filing deadline is next Thursday, August 7.
