|Dear valued members:
We have plenty to be concerned about and once again, some of the details of how we might survive as a downtown community, as businesses and as individuals are outlined below.
But let’s spend a moment remembering Rick Doyle, longtime City Attorney, who did his job about as well as anyone could. Doyle passed away after battling cancer privately, at 65, just two weeks after retiring.
What makes us speak so fondly of Doyle was that he told it like it was, legally, and without personal views or biases. As Mayor Sam Liccardo stated: “He never allowed himself to be anything less than the incredibly kind, thoughtful, good-spirited person that made him so beloved as colleague and friend.”
Doyle helped the city over the years with too many complicated issues to mention. He was loyal to his job and city, and dedicated to his part making San Jose a better city.
Our hearts, thoughts and wishes go out to his surviving family.
