    Dear Mr. York and the San Francisco 49ers,

    I am sure that you experienced panic on Monday with the announcement of Mayor Matthews' resignation. I am sure that you are scrambling to find a candidate to replace your ally and keep the board majority in your favor. I would like to give you some unsolicited advice.

    STOP. WALK AWAY.

    The best thing that you can do for your organization and its relationship with the residents of Santa Clara is to stop participating in our politics. Don’t send your financially dependent supporters to give speeches at our school board meetings. Don’t give money to candidates. Don’t recruit anyone to run for mayor. Don’t have secret strategy meetings. Don’t lobby our council members or school supervisor members.

    STOP. WALK AWAY.

    It will take courage and respect for others (who actually live in Santa Clara) to allow local politics to stay local, but it’s probably the ONLY way that you can reverse your current karma situation (5-11) and repair your relationship with the residents of Santa Clara, soccer players, girl scouts and others.

    STOP. WALK AWAY.

    This is probably hard to hear since your money has allowed you to buy many things in the past. But, Santa Clara is no longer for sale. We are going to take our city back…one 49er politician at a time!

    STOP. WALK AWAY.

     

    Sincerely,

  • I think that you will be successful in getting more public interest if your focus is on creating a group that isn’t as adversarial/angry as previous Santa Clara groups. I think that it would be good to have a small group meet to discuss issues.
