Daily Fetch 1.27.11: Very Silicon Valley, Mr. President…

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

The Redwood City Police Chief, Louis Cobarruviaz, is leaving his post abruptly. He was on vacation since December 20th and not due back until next week, which by itself is quite striking, at least in our eyes.  In any event, he decided he doesn’t want to come back and will retire/resign on February 16th.  The City Council seems to be caught off guard in Bonnie Eslinger’s Daily News story… We’ll see what the Redwood City fall-out is from this big news…

With the top police officer leaving Redwood City, some lower-level police officers are going to be added to the streets of SSF after their Council voted last night
The County is going to go ahead and buy $40,000,000 worth of buildings in San Carlos.  The money is coming from the County’s reserve funds, because why would the County need that money in the coming year or years?  Actually, the County is saying that the purchase will save the County “hundreds of thousands of dollars per month spent on leases for office spaces for County workers…”
From San Bruno:
Speaking of San Bruno, the Peninsula Health Care District will honor San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane (and the rest of San Bruno’s first responders) at their annual event today.  They will also announce $2,000,000 in grants to 12 local organizations…
How many times have we seen variations on this headline about Half Moon Bay? This one from the Daily Journal:  Half Moon Bay searches for new revenue… The HMB Review also has details in their coverage:  City leaders brainstorm budget ideas
(The HMB Review also has a new website…)
To the local Congressional Dynamic Duo:
Congresswoman Jackie Speier would like to launch “National Congress on Your Corner Day” to honor Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in wake of the Tuscon attack.
Congresswoman Anna Eshoo said that the President was “describing her district” when he spoke about innovation and the jobs of tomorrow… Which is pretty much what we tweeted during the State of the Union on Tuesday night:
@thedailyfetch:  ”Innovation isn’t just how we change our lives, it is how we make our living…” Very Silicon Valley, Mr. President…
