Why is Pat Meyering being Silenced?


Courtesy BeFair.INFO – The current and ex-council members who want Pat Meyering silenced have accepted money from special interests and do not want to hear publicly that there could be a CONFLICT OF INTEREST for them to vote on certain issues that come before the council. For example, when a developer proposes to build an apartment complex that squeezes too many units into a small space, he naturally hopes to find friends on the council that will vote to accept his plans.

When situations like this come up, Pat asks those council members who accepted money from the developer to abstain from the vote. A council member who has accepted money from the developer is probably uncomfortable voting, but usually does so anyway.  Continue reading

Sunnyvale Mayor Spitaleri disrupts Council Member Pat Meyering during Public Hearing


If you only have time to watch one video, click on this one titled “Crazy Sunnyvale Meeting” – the dysfunction begins at minute 1:10:

Mayor Spitaleri continuously shouts at Council Member Council Member Pat Meyering in a combative, rapid-fire manner, shutting Meyering down from further comments and questions, on behalf of Sunnyvale residents, during the May 22, 2012 Sunnyvale Council Meeting.

Spitaleri’s uncivil manner was apparently found to be out-of-compliance, because, after he demanded a 10-minute recess and conferred with City Manager Gary Luebbers, Spitaleri returned to state that Meyering was, indeed, entitled to a 3-minute speech.

I have only attended two city council meetings in my 8 years in Sunnyvale, both last Winter during the Raynor Park Activity Center fiasco, when, after having promised to provide local residents a minimum of two weeks notice prior to any vote on the sale, a vote was scheduled days before Thanksgiving and with only 72 hours notice.  The proposal included not only the sale of 3.5 acres of park land on which the Raynor Activity Center stands, but also included an extensive priority use agreement giving the purchaser (an elite private school) use of significant park acreage for the school year and summer sessions.

For obvious reasons, our community was shocked and outraged.

At the Nov. 19 and Dec. 3 2013 meetings, I saw no evidence of the types of behaviors CM Pat Meyering is accused of in the recall petition.  Continue reading
