Triangle annexation

Dear City Council Members,

I am writing you with the strongest possible support for the proposed
Triangle annexation. My wife and I have lived on Sharon Road since 2003 and
have owned our home at 2029 Sharon Rd (between Alameda and Santa Cruz)
since 2014.

As you know, the split jurisdiction makes it very difficult to handle
issues like traffic calming, pedestrian and bicycle safety, safe routes to
schools, development and most importantly law enforcement and public
safety. We have three children under the age of 6, so these issues are of
paramount importance to us.

Having been involved in prior attempts at annexation, we know the County
wants these unincorporated areas to be annexed to their representative
cites, where they can better manage local issues and we heard directly from
the Mayor of Menlo Park during a meeting on our block that she wants this
to happen as well.

Frankly, it is a travesty that we wholeheartedly support Menlo Park
businesses and schools, but cannot vote in Menlo Park. And if you have ever
driven past our block to cross between Alameda and Santa Cruz, you know
that the shoddy road conditions are unfathomable for a row of newly
constructed multi-million dollar homes and serves as a black mark on not
just the Triangle but all of the surrounding incorporated neighborhoods.
Visitors to our block remark, "Woah, this is Menlo Park ?!?" and have no
concept of County vs unincorporated vs incorporated.

Please right what has been a long overdue wrong and finally unite Menlo

Thank you for your consideration.
