Dear Mayor Cline,

The Wyland Foundation in partnership with the National League of Cities and
the U.S. EPA would like to invite you and the city of Menlo Park to
participate in the 5th annual National Mayor's Challenge for
Conservation. You will join mayors of such prominent cities as
Pittsburgh, Dallas,
San Diego, Denver, Miami, Boise, Santa Fe, Pasadena, Gainesville, Tucson
and many more who lead their cities in the 2015 National Mayor's Challenge.

We ask Mayors/city officials across the nation to challenge their residents
to conserve water, energy and other natural resources by going to
mywaterpledge.com and making simple, easy to do, pledges online throughout
the month of April, Earth month. Once there to make their pledge, your
residents will be able to see your city official's statement of support for
conservation once they select their city to make their pledge.

Example of a statement of support visible to your residents when they
select your city to make a pledge:

Last year residents in 3900 cities across all 50 states made over 390,000
pledges to conserve our precious resources.

To support your residents all you need to do is to go to
www.wylandfoundation.org/mayors and enter a brief Statement of Support for
the National Mayor's Challenge 2016. Again, your residents will see your
statement of support when they go online to select their city and make
their pledge.

All the tools needed to communicate the program to your residents are
provided to you including press releases, digital artwork, text for social
media, and much more. Additionally, national and local promotion is
provided by the Wyland Foundation and our partners including display ads,
television promotions, live events, and more. Already established as one of
the nation's most engaging conservation programs, the challenge is a
no-cost, non-profit program, that requires no additional demands on city
resources or staff.

Once your city is signed up, your residents are eligible to win thousands
of dollars in prizes, including a Toyota Hybrid, which will be awarded to
one lucky resident in one of the winning cities across the United States
who make conservation a priority.

The 2016 Challenge takes place April 1st-30th. We would love to have the
city of Menlo Park added to the list of cities participating for 2016. For
more information and to sign up please visit www.wylandfoundation.org/mayors
. If additional information is desired, our team at the Wyland Foundation
is available to do a 15-minute Webex presentation.

We believe water conservation is the single most important thing any of us
can do to preserve our way of life. Your efforts to help your city and our
nation conserve water truly make a difference for this generation and every
generation to follow. It is a great addition to every mayor's legacy.
