Waving flags on whose dime?

Those flags are certainly uninspiring...
What's that? Is that supposed to encourage me to shop menlo park? I'll shop where there is innovation and value, not because of a sense of loyaly to pay high Menlo Park sales taxes. Shop menlo park so my sales tax dollars will pay our city manager's $250k salary (+ benefits)?
Misguided flag initiative. How much did those flags cost?

The Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce is behind the flags. They were paid for by the chamber, according to Fran Dehn, the chamber's president and CEO.
The chamber's holiday committee came up with the idea for the flags, Ms. Dehn said.

I just want to say -thank you. I am so entertained by these posts. I love seeing how worked up people get over the smallest things.
Ahhh, cheers Menlo Park, cheers.
