Letter: Happy with Portola Valley endorsements

The Almanac got it right in endorsing Maryann Derwin, John Richards and Craig Hughes for Portola Valley Town Council.

Maryann and John should be re-elected to the council and Craig should be elected to it on Nov. 5. Through their thoughtful comments at public meetings and also their voting history, these three have shown commitment to upholding Town values as expressed in our General Plan. This is important. They also understand how Portola Valley does, and should, fit in regionally.

I agree with the Almanac endorsement that these three will keep Portola Valley going the in right direction.

Maryann Derwin, John Richards and Craig Hughes are the candidates who deserve everyone's vote. We are fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to keep these gifted volunteers working for us.
