Advice from Councilmember Pat Meyering regarding YES on Measure M Sunnyvale


Courtesy Sunnyvale Councilmember Pat Meyering

Voters in Sunnyvale were sent a Sample Ballot & Voter Information Pamphlet by the County Registrar.

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.

Measure M, the Public Land for Public Use Act, requires such city council decisions to be approved by a simple majority of voters.   Santa Clara + Milpitas are seeking approval by two-thirds of voters. Continue reading

Holly Lofgren urging a YES vote on Measure M Sunnyvale


Open Letter to Sunnyvale residents from Holly Lofgren urging a YES vote on Measure M

I am a 32-year resident of Sunnyvale and supporter of Measure M.  In that time, I have helped out my community in many ways. In 2002 I chaired the committee to build our 50-meter swimming pool at Fremont High School.

I also chaired committees to raise funds for our wonderful local high school district and raised funds for many local charities. I did all these things because I believed in them.

More recently, I got involved in questioning some out-sized development proposals including the one at Butcher’s Corner because I felt the plans were unreasonable. We all have an obligation to assist in our community and if you have specific knowledge, we each have an obligation to share what we know. Here is mine.

I personally witnessed 3 sales/leases or attempted sales/leases of public property that were not conducted in full public view. Continue reading

Council Must Be Barred from Voting on Their Donors’ Proposals

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 7:00 p.m., the city council considers a request by a real estate developer for special rezoning to build very high density, 89-foot tall office towers in two square blocks along N. Wolfe Road, and Arques Ave., 500 feet away from Sunnyvale residences.

The towers will contain ¾ of a million square feet of office space, triple what the current building limit allows.  A City-owned street is being abandoned and the land given to the developer to provide more area to build on.  Nearly 100 million pounds of concrete will be poured, including to build 2541 parking spaces.   160 ‘Heritage Trees’ will be cut down, making a mockery of Sunnyvale’s Urban Forest Plan.

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.
