Three letters for you: W-O-W. Responsible leadership manifested in back and forth negotiating with out of town gas station owners at crazy rates? Either too much time on his hands or desperate times requires measures. Probably gets less than 10 votes out of that. Funny thing is if he had not tried to be so fond of grabbing the tied down microphone during his opening debate comment, he probably would have not lost 50 votes--and to think that would have been actually been a zero cost.

Ugly top to bottom. Just like the town would become if Piece-of-workhiemer is elected.

Even though it is just little old Millbrae you can have fun checking out Reuben Holober for Millbrae City Council video on Youtube. ;-P

Ooo La La...very cheeky Reuben. I will be voting otherwise.

The gas station sign issue is completely amusing, not because of the issue itself, but how incapable people seem to be able to understand it is "advertising." The signs are obviously not typical yard signs, there does not appear to have been any payment for yard signs at homes or other businesses. Advertising is a regular part of politics. How is what he did any different than ads in the paper, radio or TV (albeit in bigger elections.) A US Senate candidate bought a billboard off the San Mateo bridge in 2010, I saw an ad for a candidacy on that electronic sign in Redwood City area on 101 in the last Gov. election... driving to the South Bay you can also see a "Vote for Greg Conlon for Atherton City Council" sign from 101 on someone's business billboard. (Sorry don't remember what biz it is.) And for what its worth, I would personally never vote for anyone because of sign placement be it advertising or a yard sign. However...there is no question it helps with name recognition which based on his own words appeared to be a reason Peceimer did it. The Keighran quote about not paying for yard signs and the follow up comments on this issue (minus what appeared to have been an error with the reporting address) sounds like nothing more than people upset that a candidate has money to spend on his election and is doing just that. I would not have made the $7 comment myself, and while it is fair to say the signs likely don't earn many votes, they certainly help him with name recognition.

Millbrae- I see a lot of Ratke signs, nice to see a newcomer doing well.
