I have discussed this matter with the City Manager this morning, and neither
of us recall me ever being provided any information or briefings relating to
the subject of Mr. Smith, even generally. I have asked him to prepare a full
accounting of the City's dealings with Mr. Smith. I have also asked him to
verify that I was never briefed on the subject of Mr. Smith, even generally,
or without informative context.

First, can you confirm that you posted that?

Personally, I believe you, that you had no knowledge of this "subject of Mr.
Smith", even generally, to the best of your and Mr. MacIntyre's
recollection.

There is a however a question of whether or not Menlo Park formally
contracted with Mr. Smith. Your response does not deny that it did. Nor
does it suggest that Mr. MacIntyre denied that it did.

The non-denial suggests that the City did contract with Mr. Smith, and I
don't think we should have to guess about this or wait for a full
"investigation" to confirm the basics.

Can you confirm the fact that Mr. Smith was contracted by the city,
presumably under the discretionary authority of the City Manager, and
describe the scope of work? In particularly can you send me the contract
including the scope of work? If the scope of work is the proposal as
outlined in the email please indicate that.

Thanks,

Sincerely,

Paul Collacchi

All,

Please see the attached file. It contains details of a possible
publicly funded PR campaign against Measure M. Also attached is the
March 3, 2014 proposal from Malcolm Smith with details of the potential
campaign.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
