Best and Worst of the Week in Santa Clara: City Attorney Brian Doyle vs the 49er’s $3 Million Dollar Men

By Robert Haugh

This week it was like a cage match with City Attorney Brian Doyle against a tag team of three.

The Good — The Leg Drop Award

Doyle has been successful in fighting the 49ers for years. He’s stopped them from lowering their own rent. And he’s blown the whistle on them for wage theft and self-dealing. He’s representing Santa Clara well.

The Bad — The Jabroni Award:

Jed York spent $3 million last year to help elect Councilmen Anthony Becker, Suds Jain and Kevin Park. None of them could win a city election before. Now, York wants to collect. In the words of Jain, the team “would like to see Brian Doyle gone.”

Becker, Jain and Park are not representing Santa Clara at all when they do the 49ers’ bidding.
