Letter to the Editor by Bruce Shepherd

As the City continues to implode because of this mayor and those who do her bidding on the council, I sincerely hope the voters are paying attention come November before these few destroy this City for years to come. In a short period of time the mayor has launched two fruitless audits of 49ers and stadium, hired a city manager making $800K in salary and benefits (her assistant half that), and now eliminated the ONLY team that markets the city, the Convention and Visitors Bureau. Even worse, the mayor and council are in bed with a consultant that was a colossal and unmitigated failure at Team San Jose (the CVB) and will no doubt fail in Santa Clara as well. For this gross incompetence, there should be a Grand Jury investigation on possible illegal improprieties.
