Well instead of a "banana" shaped district, we now enjoy one that looks more like a "cashew nut." I'm looking forward to learning more about the Palo Alto/Mountain View/Los Altos "community of interest" with Monte Sereno and Los Gatos.

But we have the advantage of no incumbent running in November, so I hope we will be successful in recruiting candidates who care about the watershed stewardship mission of the Water District in addition to water supply and flood damage reduction responsibilities.
