Contributed by the Office of Supervisor Warren Slocum:
Menlo Park Mayor Peter Ohtaki will welcome and join San Mateo County Supervisor Warren Slocum at the Supervisor’s ‘Office Hours’ in Menlo Park on Sept. 4, 2013 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Cafe Zoё, 1929 Menalto Ave.
“I am honored to be welcomed by Mayor Ohtaki and joined by him at the first office hours that I have held in the City of Menlo Park,” said Slocum. “As a lifelong resident of Menlo Park and a former member of the Menlo Park Fire District Board, Mayor Ohtaki has a passion for all things Menlo Park and he cares deeply about the quality of life for the people in the city. He will do whatever it takes to ensure that the city continues to flourish.”
Slocum represents the 4th District that includes the communities of East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Redwood City and the unincorporated communities of North Fair Oaks and Stanford Weekend Acres.
“Menlo Park, its neighboring cities and the County of San Mateo have a long history of working together to resolve problems,” said Mayor Ohtaki. “We face significant challenges in tackling the improvements to the infrastructure to prevent future flooding of San Francisquito Creek, the ongoing need to add affordable housing stock in the county, and strategies to meet the stringent waste management targets. I believe we are fortunate to have a leader like Warren Slocum as an advocate for the people of Menlo Park. We can work together to find new approaches to these longstanding issues.”
Slocum complimented both the Mayor and the City saying, “Menlo Park is a wonderfully livable city with a certain small town charm. It’s a great place to raise a family and a great location for small business. It’s a tribute to your leadership and to your legacy.”
