City Council please take notice.
Considering the way Cat Carlton runs a Council meeting, and her not willing to take criticism, I offer, should Carlton become the next Mayor?
Carlton’s outburst towards ex-Mayor Steve Schmidt at the Oct 29th City Council Meeting can be viewed at
Here she tells Steve Schmidt:
“you need to be reverent when addressing council” . I guess she promoted herself to the status of a Queen.
Then in an interview with the Daily Post on November she is quoted saying:
Schmidt was being "rude."
"I cut him off and told him to be more polite. I ask my 7-year-old to be polite, and I ask the same of former mayors," she said yesterday”
Carlton’s equating ex-mayor Schmidt to a 7-year old is so over the top.
So Menlo Park Council, the usual procedure would be to promote Mayor Pro Tem Carlton to Mayor in December, but her behavior surely indicates she really should not become the next Mayor to represent Menlo Park.
I urge Council to select a different Council person for Mayor.
