Bill Waggoner for San Mateo City Council youth coordinator.
It was through this work that I learned about the San Mateo City Council. Basically it was common knowledge that the cost of a seat was about $6000 paid to consultants and publicists. Thus, a dozen contractors each putting up $500 sealed the deal for years of revolving-door incumbents.
All experience helps Such that in 1972 after my SUgarloaf speech, when Burkdahl said $500 wasn’t enough to buy my vote, he simply and stupidly took the bait—inviting the public to do for themselves the math which was the actual point of my expose’; and accordingly got trounced along with his comrades.
