I am disappointed that Menlo Park's largest employer is constantly in hot water for its privacy practices and attempt to deflect responsibility for hate speech and political attack ads be they from the left or right, U.S. or international. Such behavior taints their "donations" to the city and gives the appearance of trying burnish a reputation through the purchase of local good will.

How about the AG look into Virginia Chang Kiirly holding 2 elected positions in San Mateo County. One on the Harbor District and the other on the fire District. She is up for re election in both in 2020.
