Dear City Council Members,

I am appalled to read that you are even debating or considering hiring a
consultant from a firm in D.C with the background and experience he has. My
questions to you:

1. Are there no firms in the Bay Area or consultants in Menlo Park or
somewhere in CA that can better understand and represent our city's
2. How was this firm even identified? What process was followed? Who
identified this firm? OR who on the Council has contacts in this firm?
3. Were residents or representatives from ALL neighborhoods in the city
approached as to what the hiring process will look like, what inputs they
might have for the process etc.?

Do we need to hire a consultant with dubious political leanings from D.C.?
Are we now bringing the swamp here? Brian Lanza was the communications
director for the Trump campaign!!! You know that, right? Do we not have
enough divisions sown in this country that we need his grubby hands on our

How about creating a committee of residents of ALL neighborhoods,
backgrounds and expertise to create a strong taskforce on what direction
the city should go in. We have people with amazing talent in this city and
resources/connections. Why spend our tax dollars to hire a firm that we can
take care off in-house?

I look forward to your answers.
