I support Karna for School Board.

1. She brings strong community and Covid-19 experience with PACC as a community leader and nonprofit board decision maker.

2. She knows how hard and financially responsible decisions are made. She can bring improved processes to our Board and a highly experienced eye toward compliance, an area that PAUSD has struggled with.

3. She's a current parent with skin in the game for all her children.

4. She's proven herself as an engaged member of the Palo Alto community. She's lived in Palo Alto for 13 years and she's served on PACC for 3.

5. She has a special needs child, but she supports improving academics for all students.

6. She's a working mom and is experiencing first hand the burden of working families.

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.
