Independent Redistricting Commission

Dear Council Members,I strongly support an Independent Redistricting Commission to ensure that the voting districts required are drawn free of bias by independent resident citizens and promote greater public participation in the process of changing Menlo Park's electoral process.

Given the political climate of our country, the need for transparency and assurance of ethical action has never been greater. Rebuilding public trust must start at the local level, and the Menlo Park City Council has an opportunity to demonstrate its leadership by creating and independent commission comprised of its residents. This is particularly urgent because of the quick time frame in which the City Council is moving on this matter, and the lack of public awareness and understanding of the issues involved.

Thank you for your consideration.Beverly AltschulerMenlo Park Resident
