Menlo Park Wins Advisory Districting Commission

In response to a complaint from a Belle Haven citizen that their community is not represented on the city¬† council, Menlo Park community members organized and worked with CA Common Cause to institute district elections. The citizens, led by Belle Haven community resident Pamela Jones, succeeded in adopting an Advisory Districting Commission to ensure their community’s representation. Many thanks to CA Common Cause staff for their educational support for these citizens and to the outstanding informational resource www.localredistricting.org. For more information please visit here:
