AWARDS: Best and Worst of the Week —  Mayor Lisa Gillmor and the Organization Formerly Known as the Chamber of Commerce

By Robert Haugh

The Good —The Leg Drop Award:

Mayor Lisa Gillmor delivered her State of the City address in four locations this week on three different days. (There will be events today and tomorrow). Kudos to her for bringing City Hall to the neighborhoods. This is the second year in a row, she’s done this.

The Bad — The Jabroni Award:

The Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce is now the Silicon Valley Central Chamber of Commerce. It looks like they changed their name because they had a really, really bad year.  But they didn’t change anything else.

The leaders who made all the bad decisions for the last couple of years are still there. It’s like losing wrestler Gillberg changing his name to The Rock and expecting to all of a sudden start winning matches. Not gonna happen.

  1. Who on Earth is going to take business advice from a Lou Mariani. He has basically turned his father’s dream into a flop house. Drive by sometime and see an example of blight.
    This chamber has the real makings of a BROKEN dream team.
