Joe - Love that comment "nice landing, wrong airport". My favorite comment is, "Once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken". And to all, "Good evening!"
But, but, how can we NOT invest in 1830's technology?
Josh Becker is another out-of-state carpetbagger who has decided to locate here in California. Just like Weiner in San Francisco, he will toe the party line and want to enforce housing mandates, inflicted on us by the democrats who now control the state. He has betrayed the vast majority of city and counties who DO NOT want single family housing OUTLAWED, by voting yes for SB 9. (It really doesn't matter what the voters want, it matters what the party agenda is!). Liberals a question for you? HOW OFTEN WILL YOU CONTINUE TO PICK UP THAT BAR OF SOAP THAT SLIPPED OUT OF YOUR HAND IN THE PRISION SHOWER?
I just looked up my house on Zillow and this is what is says: Last 30-day change + $145,106 (+6.1 %)
Sorry about the errors, yes I am having beverages.

Damn voters of San Mateo County voted for a socialist who wants to ruin our neighbors! You people will get what you deserve! Wait until Biden does away with stepped up basis, your children will inherit next to nothing, because democrats want all of your money, ALL THE TIME! Again, you will people will get what you voted for! Yes, I am extremely (term for urinating).

Hi Michael, Welcome to Burlingame! I have lived here since 1981. I am hopeful that you will support OUR Burlingame council being in charge of local zoning laws. After all, in my 65 years, this is the best place I have ever lived!

Are there any BHS students who would enlighten us on the names of teachers who are indoctrinating students to believe that socialism is the way to go? We need some transparency here.

Hey Just Visiting - There is no housing crisis! I'll keep saying it until it sinks in. What we have here is an overabundance of employers and we live in a highly desirable area. People from all over the world want to live here. But, there is a finite amount of space. Pack and stack housing will only make this a less desirable area to live. DON"T RUIN THIS AREA by overbuilding. We are also talking about building more housing DURING A PROLONGED DROUGHT. WHY? Perhaps a fair way to divide up needed water is to shut off water according to when a building was constructed. Last constructed would be the first to be cut-off. (O.k. newer home owners, bring it on).

Chronic complainers Maddie and Mike, from upstate New York, apparently have a handful of BHS 'socialist' students on their side. Fortunately for the 99% of the rest of us, we have the Burlingame City Council on our side! Thank you Burlingame City Council for allowing common sense, versus socialist hysteria, rule the day. We are not racist or segregationists. Saying it over and over does not make it true. Wanting to live in a suburban environment is not wrong, no matter how often you say it is. There is no such thing as a successful socialist society, no matter how much you wish it to be.

The recent BHS graduates are being taught to be social justice warriors, instead of productive members of society. ISN'T THAT SPECIAL?

Holy - Did you think changing your handle from Holy to Holly would lead people to believe you are more sane? (P.S. It is not working)
Why does it seem that most of our local whiners and complainers (who think of themselves as activists and advocates) come from OUT-OF-STATE? A few examples are Maddie and Mike from New York, Jonathon and Josh from Pennsylvania, Michael from Washington, Amy and Katie from who knows where, have moved to San Mateo County and all they do is complain. Some complaints are 1) it is too expensive here; 2) the implication that we a racist society; 3) single family housing is racist and segregationist; 4) I want more bike lanes; 5) I want affordable housing (that someone else pays for); and on and on. Why didn't you stay in your hometowns and 'fix them'? I believe all of them have somehow come to the conclusion that all of us native inhabitants just don't any better, but we like the way things were BEFORE YOU SHOWED UP. Anyway, WE DON'T WANT YOU TO RUIN OUR WAY OF LIFE! WE LIKE THINGS THE WAY THEY WERE!

holyroller - It seems out of state housing 'activist or advocates' are complaining about everything, ALL OF THE TIME. Apparently they are envious of what others here have and don't mind ruining our area.
Evan Adams - You state "people who serve our communities" Do they serve our communities or just their self interest? Why won't Mullins and Becker come out and state their positions on these proposals?
I have been warning as many as possible about these two senate bills, SB-9 and SB-10. Mullins and Becker will be the ones voting on these bills. We need to make it clear that their political careers will be over if they vote yes. Ask yourself this question. If you own or rent a single family home, do you want a multi-unit building on either side? If the answer is no, then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! DON"T JUST SIT THERE. We know that State Senator Weiner is in the pockets of developers. What about Mullin and Becker? Call them and demand to know what their positions are, after all, they are supposed to be representing us, not themselves. It is time for us to make the time to actively pursue this issue. Has anyone seen the abomination being built on Millbrae Avenue, next to the BART station?
How about Assemblyman Mullin and Senator Becker? They are the ones who will be voting on it. Are they willing disappoint the vast majority of voters in their districts?
I will overwhelmingly support any and all councilmembers who vote to reverse the natural gas ban. What right does anyone have to ban a legal product, just because they feel like it will help "Save our planet"? Even though this has proven to NOT be the case. Any takers out there?
Who will be getting the shaft? Every long time home or property owner in the Bay Area. Who will be giving us the shaft? Biden! He wants to raise the capital gains tax from 20% to 39.6%. If you bought a property 20 or more years ago, you probably have a large capital gain. Under Trump, you would pay the Feds $200,000.00 on a $1,000,000.00 gain. Biden wants to raise that to $396,000.00 (+ the state will want it's share). Glad all of you hand-wringing liberals got that mean old Trump out of office! But in the processed you have stepped on your own... (you fill in the appropriate word).
From the Post, "It Doesn't Matter"; President Biden's climate czar, John Kerry, told a White House press briefing that even if the U.S. reduced its emissions to zero, it wouldn't make much of a difference in the global climate change fight because 90% of the plant's emissions come from foreign countries, such as China. Kerry made his remarks before President Biden signed a number of executive orders on climate.
At least the two passengers, with no driver, are out of the gene pool.
Considering the facts, what chance do we have that the Burlingame City Council will reverse their stance? They could even say "Upon further review of the facts, we have chosen to reverse our course of action." It would take guts, but it would be the right decision.
Popular vote Biden 81,268,924 or 51.3% Trump 74,216,154 or 46.9%
