San Mateo County, CA June 3, 2008 Election
Smart Voter Political Philosophy for James "Jim" Dobbie

Candidate for
Member, City Council; City of Atherton

This information is provided by the candidate

The builders and developers in Atherton have an influence in the Town disproportionate to their numbers as residents. It would be tragic to see their influence increase in this election.

I am running as an independent not supported by any special interests and would represent all residents fairly.

My believe is that property rights and community interests can coexist in a balanced manner to keep Atherton the wonderful place for the present generation and the next.

The financial progress of the last 6 years has been excellent, but there is still room for further improvement, which because of my 40 Years in business management I have the knowledge to help accomplish. The Town Council has had some public embarassement, which gives the appearance of division in the team. Because of my success in team building in the business world, I believe I can be a positive force in unifying the Council
