Our present, bucolic, civic center property, with our library in the distance.
Those of you who don't live in my little town of Los Altos, California, may feel that I've been spending too much time on my local issues here on this blog, and that these local issues don't relate to you. The truth is, what is happening in my town is applicable to the serious problems we are all seeing at the federal, state and local level in recent years. Government is acting in its own interest or at the behest of special interests. Taxpayers are finding their interests least represented.
There is a law that prevents my local government from campaigning for a bond issue. I believe my local government is breaking this law. You tell me what you think.
