Claim for Damages Against the City of East Palo Alto
This Claim was filed in July, 2008 in an attempt to get our City Council to take action to correct the manner in which the City is being run and to inform citizens of the deplorable situation and to hold accountable those who are responsible. If I am re-elected, we will correct this egregious situation.
