Letter: Sad to see sudden departure of official

I was incredibly sad to learn of Janet McDougall's sudden departure from her position as Portola Valley's assistant town manager.

As a member of the Parks and Recreation Committee, I was fortunate to have worked closely with Janet and found her to be an intelligent, extremely organized and dedicated employee.

The town was fortunate to have such a skilled, productive and kind person working for us. I think that she had planned to be around for at least another year and had hoped to train her successor.

Those who knew and worked with Janet will truly miss her sense of humor and calm competence under pressure. The town's residents have lost a real friend in the Town Hall.
