At the Friday night City Council debate at Willard Jr. High School, it was reported that Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates dismissed any suggestion that massive Downtown Skyscrapers weren't the best way to deal with the city's numerous financial problems by claiming that those who weren't in favor of just giving away our downtown to Tom Bate's developer campaign contributor/cronies were living in "Patti Dacy World"!! Let me be the first to suggest I'd rather live in Patti Dacy World, a green and friendly small town version of Berkeley than in Mayor Tom Bates filthy over-crowded, crime-ridden, Manhattanized Berkeley.
Come on, if this city council were able to do anything better than our current disgraceful commercial shopping districts, where filth and empty storefront are epidemic, we'd have already seen it. They've had years to ruin our city, it's time to elect folk who can run our city for our benefit, not just for the developers.
