MARK WEISS 2014 My vote for Palo Alto City Council

WHO IS MARK WEISS?

A MERCHANT FRIEND SAID:  “YOU SAID IT BEST TERRY…YOU SAID MARK WEISS IS THE GUY THAT IS NOT BEHOLDING TO ANYONE…THE MOST HONEST OF ALL THE CANDIDATES, HE OWES NO ONE ANY FAVORS AND THAT’S WHY I’M VOTING FOR HIM!

ANOTHER FRIEND OF MINE, AN ARTIST SAID: “TERRY WHAT I KNOW ABOUT MARK IS THAT HE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT PALO ALTO!”

“I HAVE A KEEN INTEREST IN OUR SCHOOLS. MY PARENTS DECIDED TO MOVE HERE SO I COULD ATTEND THE PALO ALTO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT: FREMONT HILLS, TERMAN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND GUNN HIGH SCHOOL. IT WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST PRIVILEGES OF MY LIFE.” SAID MARK, WHOSE FATHER PAUL WEISS WAS THE FIRST TO SIGN HIS PETITION TO RUN FOR OFFICE.

CITY HALL NEEDS SOME SHAKING UP. MARK WEISS IS THE PERSON THAT CAN DO THAT. HE SPEAKS WHAT IS ON HIS MIND. A BIT FLIP AT TIMES BUT ITS HONEST. WE HAVE A HARD TIME LISTENING TO TRUTHS IN PALO ALTO. WE DON’T TALK ABOUT: THE HOMELESS, THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO SLEEP IN THEIR CARS, THE CHILDREN WHO WILL BE TAKEN OUT OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WHEN THE TRAILER PARK CLOSES, THE ELDERS WHO BARELY MAKE IT CROSSING THE STREET BECAUSE THE PEDESTRIAN LIGHTS CHANGE TOO FAST, THE FORECLOSURES, THE WORKING PEOPLE, OUR TEACHERS, THAT CAN’T AFFORD TO LIVE HERE BUT DEDICATE THEIR LIVES TO TEACHING OUR CHILDREN WELL.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT POLITICIANS WHO HAVE HELD OFFICE, FOR SOME, WAY TOO LONG… I NOTICE THEY ALL START TO LOOK THE SAME, SPEAKS THE SAME WAY AND OPINIONS RECEIVED FROM THE WORKING CLASS PEOPLE ARE USUALLY DISMISSED AT ENDLESS CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS. MANY OF OUR POLITICIANS LIVE IN THE BEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN TOWN AND THEY JUST DON’T GET IT.

SADLY ONE DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF POLITICIAN IS: A PERSON WHO ENGAGES IN POLITICS FOR HIS OR HER OWN ADVANTAGE. IS THAT WHAT WE WANT, IS THAT WHO YOU ARE VOTING FOR?

I NO LONGER RECOGNIZE THE STREET THAT I LIVE ON BECAUSE THE CHARM OF OUR OLD BUILDINGS IS GONE AND HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY BLOCKS OF STERILE GLASS AND METAL OFFICE BUILDINGS. THAT IS PROOF AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, OF THE DEVELOPMENT DEALS OF THE LAST TEN YEARS OF THIS LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

I REMINDED MARK TO TAKE CARE OF HIS PARKING TICKET BECAUSE THAT DOESN’T LOOK GOOD ON A POLITICIAN’S RECORD. BUT, I ALSO SAID TO MYSELF THAT MARK WAS PROBABLY TALKING TO SOMEONE AND GOT CARRIED AWAY IN THE CONVERSATION WHICH MADE HIM LATE. THAT IS WHAT MARK DOES BEST. HE IS A PEOPLE PERSON AND KNOWS HOW TO ENGAGE WITH EVERYONE AND ANYONE. HE IS NOT AFRAID TO BE YOUR VOICE IF YOU GIVE HIM THE OPPORTUNITY. HE HAS THE SKILLS OF A REPORTER ALWAYS RESEARCHING THE STORY AND TELLING IT WELL. HE CAN LEARN THE RIGHT POLITICS AND WILL SERVE YOU IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS PALO ALTO COMMUNITY. PLEASE GIVE HIM YOUR VOTE. MARK WEISS  IS THE TRUE RESIDENTIALIST CANDIDATE!
