What does "No Strings Attached" mean?? Can I assume Mr. Bragg means that he will not be "attached" to past and present politicians who endorse other politicians?? Mr Bragg says he only wants to be "attached" to the people of Menlo Park. This sounds very refreshing, if true.
The other candidates are using a proven political strategy with the listing of endowments. But it does sound interesting to have some "new blood" on the Board who will owe the people of Menlo Park for getting him elected.
From what I have heard Mr. Bragg has done and continues to do quite a bit of community service outside the City Building walls, which sounds pretty NON-self serving. It is a good thing to have someone out on the streets working and listening to the community and then discussing the needs of the people with the Council.

Mr. Bragg must remove his signs from the City's street medians and telephone and electricl poles. Neither is appropriate or legal. You must get approval by the owner (PG&E) to post signs.
This contributes to the blight of our City. Fortunately, the other candidates seem to comply with the law.
