Change We Can believe In?

Do you think Obama is making a difference in our country? Can You make a difference in our local special parks district?

MROSD Board members decided a few years ago that only 65% of trails in Preserves should be open to bikes, and have generally made decisions that the nice trails should be bike free – bikes can go up the exposed, steep fire roads.

The same board members are deciding right now how many trails if any will be open in La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve – right next door to El Corte de Madera OSP – and for any future preserves.

The economic downturn has made land a little more affordable now, yet the Board has decided that now is the time reflect and inventory the land that has been acquired. They aren’t making more land. Do you think they should be buying now?

The board decides in a general way what activities the staff engage in. Do you think rangers should be pointing (radar) guns at visitors in our preserves?

Can you right a few more catchy campaign type statements like these? Reply to this message!

There is no reason there should not be several mountain bikers sitting on the board of directors of MROSD, but now is the time to start planning for the 2010 elections. There are 4 seats up for reelection in 2010:

Ward 1: Pete Siemens
Cupertino, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Saratoga

Ward 2: Mary Davey
Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Palo Alto, Stanford, Sunnyvale

Ward 5: Nonette Hanko
East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Stanford

Ward 6: Larry Hassett
Atherton, La Honda, Loma Mar, Menlo Park, Pescadero, Portola Valley, Redwood City, San Gregorio, Woodside

Who do you know that we can get to run in these districts?
