i just received this email. as a long time Menlo Park resident, i urge you
to find ways to reduce the payroll and pension expenses that taxpayers are
facing. we all want good services from the Town but would hope that you're
exploring the most efficient ways to obtain them.


regards

Oppose Bill to Balloon City Costs

Fellow Residents,

Why isn’t our City Council supporting their organization, the League of
California Cities, and actively opposing AB 1250?

This bill would essentially eliminate all contracted services, increase the
number of unionized public employees, increase costs and pension
liabilities and further burden cities with a plethora of new regulations.

Urging action, the The League of California Cities
<https://www.cacities.org/Policy-Advocacy/Action-Center/AB-1250-(Jones-Sawyer)-Counties-and-Cities-Contr>
writes:



The workload, privacy concerns, costs and litigation created by this
measure places an overwhelming and significant burden on nearly every city
department and would create a de facto ban on virtually all contracting
services. [think tree trimming, Outstanding Swim Program, many
recreational programs, legal services, consultants etc etc. ]

This bill was described in an editorial by the Mercury News
<http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/04/21/editorial-union-bill-in-california-legislature-to-limit-local-cities-contracting-decisions-is-an-ambiguous-mess/>
as a

Union-Sponsored Bill with the clear intent: Increasing the number of public
employees, who would be members of unions, rather than looking at outside
services that could be more cost-effective.

On Tuesday, our City Council will vote to support bills that regulate marijuana
consumption and impairment while driving. An easy no brainer which everyone
will support.

The question is: Why isn’t AB 1250, called a HOT bill by the League, also
on the agenda and getting the same attention?

If you agree that AB1250 must be actively defeated, let city council
members and the city manager know by emailing city.council_at_(domainremoved)

Thanks, and sincerely, Lee Duboc (menlofuture_at_(domainremoved)
