Mr. Lauing has been impressive in the forums. I've found his answers thoughtful and well reasoned. Given the impacts of the pandemic, I will sleep well at night knowing he is looking out for our interests and working for us. Given all the challenges we need candidates who are interested and focused on all aspects of a functioning, city and not just the issue of the moment. Ed has and will deal with the range of issues needed. He has been in a tough position on the Planning Commission review of Castillejea, staying neutral and commenting narrowly on the referral to Council. I believe this is to preserve his ability to participate on Council should he win. I hope residents see the wisdom of this approach.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $7 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.
