Thank you Menlo Park city council (Except Mueller) for voting to raise our taxes when we are already dealing with excessive gas prices, rising power costs and inflation running higher than it has in almost 40 years. Great way to show you care about the people you pretend to represent.

not to mention their recent "screw you" to MP citizens when they voted to extend the utility tax. A tax that is no longer legal and because of that they are being sued since they've been collecting it illegally for 5 years. Do they say, "since this tax wasn't properly approved as required, let's put this in front of the voters and get it approved again?"? No, they say "eff you citizens of MP" we'll do what ever we want AND make you pay the legal bills to fight for our misfeasance..

So now we see how the lack of education effects us all. Only one council member understands that "bonds" are not FREE money.

Clearly the other council members see it as "other peoples money" and prefer to spend it all!

Hope we actually get something that improves our community, but doesn't sound like. Sad...

Good point Menlo Voter. Even when we win that case (by we I mean the residents that have been paying a tax they should not have for 5 years) we still lose because the city spends a fortune of our own money to fight it.

Election this year...

Thank you,
Mr. Mueller for standing up for principle against the crowd. I'll be donating to your campaign for County Supervisor. I recommend others support you as well.
