Hello Mr. Finan,

Thank you for your email and call. I am so sorry about the increase in
crime that you write about. I will be holding a meeting the evening of
January 11th with Chief Jonsen in the Willows in response to the increase
in residential burglaries in the Willows.. We will post details about this
meeting tomorrow.

Sincerely,
Kirsten Keith
Mayor of Menlo Park
