Enid, thanks for this detailed history!
As a 2009 Palo Alto Council candidate, I take parks seriously and will defend them against inappropriate conversion.. My professional career has been in land conservation. Working for the Big Sur Land Trust and the Sempervirens Fund, I've secured the preservation of over 18,000 acres in Central California. In recognition of my conservation values and committment, the Loma Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club has endorsed my candidacy for Palo Alto City Council.
I look forward working with you and others to maintain and protect Palo Altos's parks. [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff].
