PRESENTATIONS OF D.A.D. TO THE MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL
(The Dailey Sun-Chronicles ~ MENLOUGH PARK, CALIFORNIA) –
David A. Dailey attended the council’s last meeting of the 2015 year and suggested that Menlo act more like a city or reincorporate into a town government. Returning councilmember and outgoing Mayor Charlene “Let them Eat Cake” Carlton was absent and California Assembly member candidate Peter Ohtaki was late for the December meeting.
Without a response from the contracted City Attorney Bill McClure or any councilmember, on December 24, 2015, David filed a citizen’s complaint against seven (7) MPPD uniformed officers. There were separate incidents (MPPD Case #15-3468, #15-3531, etc.) during November (6th at 1:40 a.m. inside the 7-11 Store, 9th at 11:00 p.m. near the yogurt shop, 13th at 1:00 p.m. on the west side of MPPC / Menlo.Church, and 30th at 8:00 a.m. along Santa Cruz Avenue nearby Hillview Middle School, which has carcinogenic artificial grass athletic turf) in downtown Menlo Park that are documented.
On January 4, 2016, David filed three (3) stolen property reports based upon four events between September and December 2015. More data is being sought about (Case #16-27) the particulars of being without two cell phones and an unmatching set of luggage taken from the victim either along Santa Cruz Avenue or from historic Fremont Park.
Editors’ Notes: D.A.D. has earned Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Certified Manager (CM), and Registered Environmental Assessor (REA) designations with a M.S. in Public Health and Safety from Indiana University at Bloomington and received two post-graduate certificates from the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). He supports activities of Occupy San Francisco Peninsula, the Sequoia Union High School District, the Vice President of the United States, and has also practiced as a legislative advocate in three and as a paralegal in two states.
On November 10, 2015, D.A.D. announced that he would run for the open U.S. Senate seat.
Beforehand on November 2, 2015, D.A.D. attended a community meeting about safety in unincorporated West Menlo Park which was held at Las Lomitas School in Atherton and arranged by City of Menlo Park Councilman Ray Mueller. It was attended by County of San Mateo Supervisor and former Sheriff Don Horsley, the City’s Chief of Police Robert Jonsen, and at least a dozen other City officials. No follow-up on neighbor’s concerns was given, promised, or arranged for a later date. It is apparent that these officials believe the annexation of county-administered properties is imminent; most residents are against such action.
In 1992, D.A.D. lost an U.S. congressional race [to Anna Eshoo who is still employed in the D. C. ~ giving away American jobs locally via visas and green-cards] and in 1994 he tried to obtain more votes than popular Stanford Law Professor Tom Campbell to work in Sacramento becoming a California State Senator for human rights and services. D.A.D. spent over seven years at Lockheed during the Cold War, about seven years after graduation from Indiana University at Bloomington. After service between 2003 and 2008 as a California Departments of Public Health and Health Services’ Health Facilities Evaluator, he was illegally terminated and narrowly lost his judicial appeal versus current California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who now insists on running into the United States Senate.
D.A.D. is a Past President of the Sons of the American Revolution – Silicon Valley Chapter – State Director of the National Safety Management Society, former International Director of Communications for the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), Past President of three Toastmaster clubs, and officer of two Bay Area chapters of the ASSE.
Buck Dailey is a publisher, author of books, screenplays, and web-blogs, Obama campaigner during the last two presidential races, comedian and humorist, sports and culinary critic, business administrator, and environmental, health, security, and safety engineer.
D.A.D.’s presentation focus was about better public transportation (SamTrans / Redi-Wheels paratransit / CalTrain) and local police work.
“In Chicago, Protect and Serve is on every police car. I see none of this in Menlo Park,” he stated.
“I was fortunate to buy my first house in unincorporated Menlo Park (in the Las Lomitas Elementary School District – still one of the five best in the entire State of California) in November, 1986,” David matter of factly said.
David implied that because of poor driving habits, lack of traffic controls and lighting, removal of SamTrans bus services, and a refusal of peace officers directing traffic, that the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers is at-risk. Engineering and administrative methods by public works or police agencies would alleviate the traffic congestion during the morning commute, lunch-time period, and the long evening commute. Furthermore, the City of Menlo Park has done little to solve their own issues along Willow Road, Santa Cruz Avenue, Middlefield Road, and the El Camino Real.
The Menlo Park Police Department has a public persona that they focus on giving moving violation tickets and parking tickets; doing nothing to help ease traffic congestion. It was pointed out that for a SamTrans Route 296 bus rider to travel from Sequoia Station Redwood City through Menlo Park to either the Veterans Administration or East Palo Alto – it takes more than an hour – almost every Monday through Friday afternoon. SamTrans Routes ECR, 86, and 286 are also delayed.
On Tuesday, January 12, 2016, D. A. D. met with the head of the MPPD Internal Affairs Division and later that evening made his second consecutive presentation to the sitting City Council about Menlo Park’s police, their lost-and-found system, daily traffic congestion, and public works matters.
It has been proposed that the City return the memorial label that had been placed on a wooden park bench and suddenly removed (replaced by an uncomfortable, unlabeled metal contraption) from in front of Peet’s Coffee and Tea shop #2. In addition, the City was urged to install two additional suitable park benches into a U-seating arrangement at the Santa Cruz Avenue side of the shop with the inscriptions of three additional loyal patrons – Peetniks – whom have passed outside the second location chosen by founder Alfred Peet nearly 50 years ago. The names of: Spencer Harris, Dan Rosset, Tim Coburn, and George Resch must be inscribed on those benches outside 899 Santa Cruz Avenue at the corner of University Drive across the street to the east of historic Fremont Park.
