Ohtaki, Keith, Bernstein best choices for Menlo Park council

        Six interesting and articulate candidates are running for three Menlo Park council seats in the November election. It's an important race because the three constitute a majority on this five member council.
    We have not been particularly happy with the direction four of five current council members have gone — the exception being retiring council member John Boyle — and we feel change is needed.

        Kirsten Keith appears to be a moderate. She has served the city for a long time, including eight years on the Planning Commission, and is quite knowledgeable about the way is operates. We are unclear about her support of labor unions, but we're pleased that she is endorsing Measure L, the Menlo Park ballot initiative that would create a two-tier retivement system for city employees and require new employees to retire at 60, not 55 — a measure we vigorously support.
