No on Agenda item I3. We do not need the extravagance of a PR firm

The proposed retention of a Washington lobbying firm is wrong on multiple
levels.



Whose idea was this? Do tell.



1. Envisioned public works project (such as a cross bay railroad) is
outside the city’s core competence (what is its core competence btw? Any
ideas?) It also involves other jurisdictions, not in this picture. Why is
MP doing this lifting?

2. The city does not need a political advocacy firm

3. Placing this item at the end of the meeting when the public has left
the chambers suggests it’s a midnight sneak. Make it the first item so the
public can speak.

4. Such development projects will require an increase in staff

5. The city dance card is already full with projects n to even even
started. – M2, overpasses, underpasses, the Rapp project at the train
station.

6. Focus. Focus. Do one project right

7. There are three seats open on the council in 2018. Council
seriously needs fresh minds and experience.
