A lot of council candidates have been saying that Fremont City Hall makes life tough for business owners. I forgot to mention that at the economic forum Friday morning, executives from Summerhill Homes, Solyndra and Lam Research said doing business in Fremont was a breeze.
That doesn’t necessarily mean the council candidates are wrong. Those companies are pretty big, and one would expect the city to be more flexible with them. It could be different for a small-time business owner.
