My name is Lauren McLaughlin. I was born and raised in Menlo Park, and am currently a sophomore at
Stanford University. I am writing to you to request that you please pass the EV charging ordinance tonight,
for the following reasons:

1) Passenger vehicles are the single biggest source of carbon emissions and air pollution in California.

2) To meet our cityís and the stateís climate goals and the Paris Climate Accord and keep our planet habitable, we must move from gasoline cars to clean alternatives like electric vehicles as quickly as possible.

3) Our city is a leader in EV adoption; Menlo Parkís new EV adoption rate is 18% a year and growing fast. We can set an example for the country by continuing to increase EV adoption rates.

4) People in apartments donít drive EVs because they have nowhere to charge them. Requiring more EV charging in new construction will encourage further EV adoption.

Please help us breathe cleaner air and promote a healthier climate by passing the EV ordinance.
