Berkeley Native Sun

some history....

"First and foremost, there is every probability that the charter will be amended at the special election on January 20 and that Berkeley will have a city manager. This, together with the organization of a permanent citizens committee to work for continuous good government, will mean a business administration for the city, with nine representative citizens as unpaid councilmen and one experienced man, trained in civic administration, to carry out their policies under a rigid budget. This will be the biggest forward step Berkeley has ever made." - Managing Director Charles Keeler of the [Berkeley] Chamber of Commerce, 1923

"I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want to own." - Andy Warhol
