Best and Worst of the Week in Santa Clara: Ordinance 1950 and Councilmen Park and Becker

By Robert Haugh

The Good — The Leg Drop Award

Ordinance 1950 is the first City ordinance to win a Leg Drop award. The purpose of the ordinance is to give greater transparency into the workings of Santa Clara City Hall. That’s why the Mayor and Council have to report their meetings with special interests.

The Bad — The Jabroni Award:

But if certain Councilmembers fail to report their meetings with the 49ers, there’s no transparency. That’s why Anthony Becker and Kevin Park get this week’s Jabroni.


  1. I agree Howard, I hope someone comes off the top ropes and goes Shibuya on these two Niners.

    Jabronis for sure!

  2. Jabroni award: “…slang Someone who is annoying or obnoxious; a loser. The term originated in professional wrestling and is likely related to “jobber,” a wrestler who typically loses”
    Seems fitting.
