Five Palo Alto residents are running for three seats on the Palo Alto City Council this fall. They have had varied life experiences, from volunteering for political campaigns as a kid to starting a technology company, from care-giving for ailing family members to working to reinvigorate political organizations.
In one-on-one interviews with Palo Alto Weekly Editor Jocelyn Dong, the candidates put aside city issues to discuss their lives, their passions and lessons they've learned along the way.
