If we expect the highest standards in service, we need to offer highly competitive compensation. I hope the mayor doesn't stoop to sleazy politicking like the kind that caused the previous chief to resign.

I am not sure which mayor you are speaking about as the former chief resigned after a town hall meeting on Police reform while Cecilia Taylor was the mayor. At that town hall the police faced a lot of criticism from residents which seems to have lead to the abrupt resignation of the former chief. You might want to familiarize yourself with the circumstances of his resignation. If you are referring to the sleazy politics around the council meeting where two members of the city council were not informed and the seeming violation of the Brown Act than I agree, that needs to end and the previous case needs to be investigated and made transparent.

Regarding Menlo Park, I am happy the police are getting the respect they deserve. Regarding the fire district seat coming uo how can Virginia Kiraly run for a fire board seat when she is on the Harbor District board and is also running for District 3's Board of Supervisor's seat.
