"The district recently changed the signs on its fields to only include the district's name, not the city." Now, I wonder how former Trustee Ellen Wheeler would feel about THAT? She seemed pretty darn happy to be photographed smiling and leaning against the "City Of Mountain View, Monta Loma Park" sign in a Los Altos Town Crier article this week! (one of their 'file photos' from a few years ago : ) Did the MVWSD save those fine signs? Strategic Ambiguity: if so, they could place them Under the school district's "Field" signs, No? A "sign" of backing off, Peace and Love?

It was not clear to me that The Superintendent and some Trustees paid close enough attention (Council 6:0 vote) or listened very deeply. A 6:0 vote is a pretty 'strong statement', isn't it? I heard the Council say - no dickering, no more negotiation, we support the City Manager and the (full-time) City Attorney. Dot the i's and cross the t's.

Trustee Conley - maybe the quote chosen by the reporter shows that SHE perhaps alone has The Best of Hearing!
