Dear Mayor Mueller and Council Members,

I have been a business owner in Menlo Park for nearly 45 years. My concern
for the local and global community has been evidenced through support of
local farms, clean food, waste management, social justice for our workers
and our impact on the environment.

Climate change has happened faster than any of us ever imagined. As a chef
and restaurant owner, we do what we can to minimize our big footprint, even
in my small restaurants. We have always composted, reduced our waste, saved
energy and water, turning off burners not in use, and regenerated anything
that can be reused rather than disposed.

The challenge is that cooks have prepared food over fire since the
beginning of time. To make the shift from our current use of flames/gas
fire to electric induction burners would be hard without funding to replace
existing kitchens.

*More importantly, if we were to open a new location, we would absolutely
learn how to use alternative cooking methods and steer away from gas.*

Thank you for considering the future with clean energy Reach Codes that
support healthier new construction for the long term benefit of our
community, both local and global.

Thank You for Your Time,

Jesse Cool
