I want to say — great choice. Your endorsement of Russ Cohen for Burlingame City Council is right on (“Brownrigg, Cohen and Keighran for Burlingame” editorial in the Oct. 9 edition of the Daily Journal). There is a lot of candidate confusion out there and your endorsement provides great clarity, validating that the measure of a great candidate is not what they say they are going to do, but what they have actually done.
For nearly 20 years, Cohen has selflessly worked on a wide range of issues important to our community. He developed a funding program to prevent elimination of school crossing guards, founded our Historical Museum and fought tirelessly to ensure that High-Speed Rail does not devastate our community. He has done much more than this and his actions truly speak louder than words.
Yes, he has City Council and city commission experience, but what speaks most powerfully to me is all of his work as just a regular guy, simply wanting the best for our community.
A vote for Cohen ensures that we will continue to benefit from all he has to give to Burlingame.
