Letter: Carlton, Mueller best for Menlo council


The Almanac endorsements last week for Menlo Park City Council got it partly right. Certainly the recommendation that Kelly Fergusson should not return to the council due to her ethical missteps and broken commitments to her constituents have disqualified her for that office.

The Almanac's recommendation to elect Ray Mueller is a good choice. He has wide support in the community and has been an effective member and chairman of the Transportation Commission.

I would like to see the second open council seat filled by Catherine Carlton. She has an impressive set of experience in business, volunteer work and public service, including service as vice chair of the Parks and Recreation Commission. Also, she and Mueller are the only candidates who did not oppose pension reform Measure L, which puts them in much better touch with the 70 percent majority who approved that important step to ensure the city's long-term fiscal stability.
