Jenny Chan started this petition to Monterey Park City Council and

We are concerned about the appearance conflict of interest in the State of the City Address to be hosted at Greater Monterey Park Chamber of Commerce on July 9, 2019.

The State of the City Address is an official event of the City of Monterey Park, however, it does not appear on the city calendar as of today, June 8th. Instead, we learned about the event on June 7th through a flyer shared by the President of the Chamber of Commerce’s personal Facebook account.

The address is promoted as a paid event asking for $100 per entry; as tax paying residents of this great city, we should not have to pay to listen to elected officials’ address of the current state of our city. Furthermore, Greater Monterey Park Chamber of Commerce is a private organization and should not be profiting off such an official city announcement.

We demand the State of the City Address be rescheduled to a different time and location, where it will be open and free to all Monterey Park residents.
