Thank you PA families! To be honest, I was worried that the pandemic, economic downturn, and pain of distance learning was going to doom the parcel tax, so these overwhelming results were definitely the best surprise of election night for me.

I am also thrilled the parcel tax passed. I am of the age to be able to stop paying parcel taxes, but I've always wanted to invest in the children of Palo Alto, so I keep paying it.

I read some very concerning "sour grapes" comments on Nextdoor and was worried. But I should have had more faith in the citizens of our town.
