Just in time for Thanksgiving, Rose Herrera serves up this Turkey for maximum comedic value.
The Fetch informed our loyal readers last June that the lawn sign stealer’s wife, remember that fiasco, was planning a run for Mayor. We chuckled when we heard the news as well, but yesterday Rose officially announced the hilarity and San Jose Inside has the skinny. Herrera’s focus for SJ will be; ““As Mayor—and in my campaign—I’ll focus on issues that affect real people, like getting ballfields built for our kids…” Seriously folks, is this really, really the best SJ can do? Ball fields…really?
While Rose will be working to build ball fields, another neighborhood is on edge after a fatal shooting in a city park. NBC Bay Area has the story.
Protect San Jose prints a statement from Supervisor Dave Cortese that takes a couple of swipes at City Hall and urges the po-po to take the deal struck with the city over pay. Fetch wonders if PSJ will allow all the mayoral candidates, even the Turkey’s, to have their statements on this topic published…?
Not all Mayors want what Cluck Reed wants. The Merc’s new guy at City Hall writes about mounting opposition to the Reed initiative to slash retirement security for the middle-class. And the Huffington Post wants readers to know the truth about California’s Pension Slashers.
Oh, and we almost forgot. FETCH EXCLUSIVE: Cluck Reed is on the retreat again as his lawyer petitioned the court hearing the Measure B case and has sought another delay in implementing the controversial retirement security grab. Now Cluck and his crew want any start of Measure B to be no sooner than July 2014, if the court rules that the measure is constitutional. Thanks to our spies for the tip.
NASDAQ broke through the 4,000 mark yesterday as housing, retail and tech surged. Can you say B-U-B-B-L-E? The NY Times seems to think a face full of bubble gum may be headed our way.
In a piece published today, the NYT says Silicon Valley may be repeating history and Bill Gurley, one of the valley’s top VC’s, tweeted this: “Man, it feels more and more like 1999 every day,” “Risk is being discounted tremendously.”
HP made some money this past quarter after bleeding money the past year and their stock was higher in after hours trading.
The City of Los Altos has a new Mayor and Mayor pro tem. Megan Satterlee was appointed unanimously by the 5-member council and Jan Pepper, who is not a doctor, is the new number 2. Congratulations.
Be careful where you walk in SJ. A San Jose woman became the 24th pedestrian killed in 2013. That’s the most since 2006.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING—SEE YOU AFTER THE HOLIDAY!
