I have been lucky to have been involved in much positive change in Burlingame, including helping to create this blog. So it is appropriate for me to announce here that I will not seek a recount in the election that resulted in Mr. Ortiz gaining a seat on the Burlingame City Council by 8 votes. I congratulate him and wish him only the best. I also encourage him to blog here as well. Sincerest best of luck Ricardo.
