On Page 44, there is a half-page Impartial Analysis of Measure M.  It says the Proposed Changes of Measure M affect “Leases in excess of 55 years . . .”

None of the leases at the Sunnyvale Office Center have a duration of more than a few years.

Jim Griffith voted several times over public opposition to sell a portion of Raynor Park.   Jim voted over public opposition to allow the new owner to exclude Sunnyvale residents from use of the remaining “public park” space when the new owner wanted to conduct activities on the “public” park land.

His informative past research, publishing, and insights can be located at Citizens for Sunnyvale Parks & Green Spaces and Cal Pensions in Brief Blogspot. Michael’s intelligent integrity participating as a Councilmember will be the balanced, insightful and reasonable voice that the residents need today.

Like many, Michael has become frustrated with a City Council that ignores the needs of it’s residents and bends to the will of special interests. The issues of concern are finishing the downtown, solutions for worsening traffic and  crowded schools, and respectfully preserving the Sunnyvale parks and open space. Michael campaign states: “We need to expand the library, City Hall, Police and Fire facilities with realistic, cost-effective ways to build on what we have, not grandiose plans made by selling off our parks and green spaces to the highest bidder. Our population increases but infrastructure does not.” The lack of progress in finishing the downtown, worsening traffic, crowded schools, grandiose plans for the Civic Center, the lack of local branch libraries.
