Thanks Wynn

You tried hard and almost made it. We do appreciate all the effort you put in and you certainly ran a well organised race. Hope to see you around next time.

Thanks from me, too. I really appreciated your calm, professional demeanor and think you would have been great on the school board. You were SO close! I do hope you'll run again next time. We need you.

Wynn, I'm so glad I got to know you and your family a little bit through this process. Please thank your wife and children for loaning you to us for the past two+ months.

I hope you stay engaged in school matters as I fear the state is headed for another budget crisis that could ultimately impact our district. We will need a lot of smart people to address the board about priorities if budget cuts become necessary, and to represent those of us who appreciated your no-nonsense approach to the multitude of issues that come before the board.

THANK YOU!

Wynn - I enjoyed your comments at the forum I attended and I wish you had won, but please consider the next one.
Pneumonia can be a tricky one to recover from so take care and give yourself some time to recuperate.

Wynn, you are a very good candidate. You should definitely run again and you will probably win. The pneumonia was a tough break, but it will just be a bump in the road for you.

Wynn, I very much appreciated your comments here on Town Square and am sorry to learn that you were ill. I hope you run again. I think your views are very balanced and hope that you would bring a voice of reason to the school board. I voted for you. Please give it another try in 2 years.

In the meantime, take your vitamins and stay healthy!

Wynn,

I am very sorry to see these results. I'd really hoped for an upset at the last minute. [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff.]
Best to you.
