Spotlighting some of these city council related expenses brings up an interesting point: What information do we, the people of Pacifica, gain from city council representation attending these regional and state conferences?
And is the information distributed to other city councilmembers and city staff? Generally, at city council meetings during council communications, advisement to the public is limited, often stated as "I attended (blank) meeting or conference", followed by nothing else.

City Council didn't learn anything at the conferences, but they stayed in a Holiday Inn Express!

Ding ding ding, Groucho and George said say the magic words and win a prize! The magic words are "followed by nothing else". That's Pacifica 2015. Our winner...Ms. Kathy Meeh. Ms. Meeh has decided to forego her prize because living here is prize enough. Don't let the duck hit you in the head.

1028 We have a Holiday Inn Express right here in Pacifica. One or two council members could go sit in the lobby, maybe mooch a beverage and breakfast pastry. Wouldn't cost a dime!
