Phil Silverbarb

Sorry, I must have overlooked this misstatement when I proofread the column: "Since citizens addressing the council are not always answered at that time." What it should have said is "Since citizens addressing the council are NEVER answered at that time by law." I'll try to do better next time but this government stuff is complicated.

Hi Phil, since you enjoy commentary on Burlingame, perhaps you or one of your collegues at the paper could look into what has been happening at our danceclubs, (not bars, danceclubs, like Blush and Del Mar). Obviously the general Burlingame public is oblivious to most of this.

Also, thanks for correcting that statement above. I can think of a couple of instances where the speaker/topic was indeed addressed, but it was usually done out of order. Certainly there is a need for people to have dialog with council on issues, and not necessarily at a podium where some people are very shy to speak.


Bill Silverfarb writes a column for the Daily Journal, is Phil Silverbarb a clever imposter?

Oh, that's weird! Good call. I thought it was Phil.......or maybe it's William Philip Silverfarb.

It's not weird, just overly creative! I have aspirations to be a big time journalist in the county, but for now my nom de keyboard is only for use on the Burlingame Voice blog. The other guy you are thinking of is gainfully employed at another publication.
