Which business owners? H-P? Stanford Shopping Center? Stanford Medical Center?
Roche? McDonald's? Apple? and the list is long. At the end of the year, some council members are throwing poliltical curve balls, generating headlines, and in general just creating more civic uproar. Fortunately some are leaving offfice. Oh, that we could get rid of some of the rest.

This is an issue which should be decided by the new City Council not all the lame ducks we have on Council right now.

The residents have made it clear that Foothill Park should remain for the residents of PA only according to the agreements made when Foothill Park was Deeded to PA.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
