Palo Altans care about quality of life. I’ll champion investment in libraries, parks, and public safety.

For example, libraries promote equity and are a beloved common space, embedded in neighborhoods, where all can gather regardless of income, race, ethnicity, or other considerations. They promote learning and support those seeking advancement, free of cost. Families often enjoy them together. Yet none of our six libraries are open on Sunday and most are closed for 2-4 days per week, including our beloved Children’s Library. I’ll work to address budgeting, revenue, and other issues that stand in the way of greater access to these community assets.
