Needs editing:

"Google said the bridges would help its headquarters to a new Google campus at NASA Ames.

Given the fact that they are in talks with Sunnyvale to build by Moffett Park I would be more worried that they just close down in Mtn. View and move to Sunnyvale if these meetings don't go their way.

Dear Google,
Most of are grateful for your presents in our community, and consider it an honor to have you here. We're more than willing to change our leadership, if that's what's needed to keep you.

Dear Google,
