« Fall Sports Wrap-up | Main | High Cost Rail - Part 64 Court Says "No" »

November 09, 2011



This is just so pathetic to me. There is never really a challenge to the incumbents, so what the hell, what choice do you have but to vote for people who are just keeping a seat warm and flying under the radar. The winners, if I can call them that are definitely in it for the benefits, not for the people. Such a sad state of affairs.


Well, on the bright side we won't have to pay for another council person's health care for life.

Aprox 8,000 people voted yesterday.
The City has @30,000 registered voters.
22,000 voters did not vote yeterday.
I guess everything is well and good in The City of Burlingame.


That is truly sad. I was really hoping for fiscal sanity and a strong "NO" to high speed rail. Let's see how things pan out for 2012.


Actually, after a bit more digging on the County website, it appears 4,847 ballots were cast. That means there was a substantial number of "bullet" voters casting only one of their two votes. The total population is 28,158 and 19% are under 18. There are about 15,000 registered voters so the turnout was about 32% which is in line with the historical averages.

Two Cents

Thank you for running Ortiz, so that those other 2 didn't just walk in. They had to work for it.

Yackety yack will no longer be mayor. Thank Goodness.
