Yesterday, I attended a "Yes on Measure A" rally, complete with a lot of "Yes on Measure A" signs. Afterwards, I walked back to my car as a one-man parade, with a sign held high in each hand.
A man stopped me on the sidewalk.
"What's that sign about?"
"It's supporting Measure A in Santa Clara County, which protects rural areas outside of cities by limiting the amount of new development that can happen there."
He paused a moment.
"That's a good thing to do. They shouldn't be putting lots of houses up in the hills."
It's a pretty straightforward message - I just wish we had a chance to have a similar conversation with every voter in the County.
