Kirsten Keith Polls Voters during Telephone Town Hall
With over four thousand voters participating in her Telephone Town Hall,
Supervisor candidate Kirsten Keith polled voters on key issues.

Menlo Park, CA, June 3, 2012 -- On May 30, 2012, Menlo Park Mayor Kirsten Keith connected with 4,637 voters during a Telephone Town Hall. When these voters were asked to identify the most important County issue, the budget deficit bumped both economic development/job creation, and high speed rail. 31% said the budget should be balanced through cuts only; 29% supported cuts and new economic development; 27% were against any cuts, and only wanted new taxes; 13% wanted both cuts and new taxes.  

When asked what services voters most value, 60% responded with police, ambulance and fire services.

"It was great to communicate with so many county voters, all at once," said Mayor Keith. "People are very concerned about the budget and public safety. My track record balancing complex budgets and negotiating contracts, along with my extensive experience working as an attorney in the criminal justice system, have prepared me to tackle the challenges that voters really care about."
