Proposed water increase

Dear city council members,
I understand that the proposed water rate increase for Menlo Park is being discussed on Tuesday. I won't be attending the meeting but would like to voice my objection to such a substantial increase.  I live alone on a limited income and an increase of 35% on top of the already annual increases, particularly when I am doing my part to conserve water sounds outrageous!  I object particularly to the idea of reducing the rate for those large consumers and passing along the increase to us who are conserving!!!  Where is the sense in that idea?  Kind like giving the tax breaks to the wealthy, don't you think?
How about some thoughts to a fair increase across the board so we all bear the same share of the burden?  Thank you for your consideration - I hope our community objections don't fall on deaf ears.
