City Council Agenda Request - Media/PR Consultant Policy

From: Mueller, Raymond <"Mueller,>
Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2014 10:00:40 -0800

Dear Mayor Carlton,

I humbly request that a discussion item be added to the City Council agenda in the near future, regarding whether or not to direct the City Attorney to draft an amendment to the Menlo Park Municipal Code, prohibiting the City from hiring a PR or media consultant for any purpose, without express authorization by the City Council granted in a public meeting.

This request is not to be taken as judgment on the legality of past actions of City staff retrospectively. Rather, I believe this action is necessary to set clear policy and expectations from the City Council as to what level of sunshine and disclosure we expect for both the City Council and the public on such issues going forward into the future.

With best regards,
Ray Mueller
