Menlo Park Homeowner in support of an Independent Elections Commission

Dear Menlo Park City Council,

My family and I are homeowners in the Belle Haven district of Menlo Park.
As Menlo Park residents we expect City Council to employ the highest
standards for how and where voting districts will be drawn. We believe that
this can only be assured by an independent commission that has binding
authority, and is free from political bias.

We strongly disagree with the City Attorney's recommendation to enlist an
advisory commission. Our disagreement is based on years of documented,
inequitable distribution of resources and political power across our city.
The City of Menlo Park must be fairly represented by all its citizens and
communities. It is common sense that an independent commission will provide
a more objective and balanced view of our city's communities, and establish
a more equitable division of voting blocks.

Thank you for service to our community, and for your commitment to free and
fair elections.

Respectfully yours,

Jay M Dunlap
