As your Councilmember since 2008, I have worked hard representing your interests. I’ve served on the Town’s General Plan, Finance, Transportation, New Town Center, Environmental, Legal Selection and Rail Committees. Regionally, on San Francisco Airport Noise Abatement, Peninsula Traffic Congestion, Regional Housing, HEART Board, ABAG and others.

I promise I will continue to listen and pursue the work you elected me to accomplish; manage Atherton’s limited financial resources, protect its rural character, be the voice of reason, initiate ethics and governance oversight insuring transparent proceedings while protecting residents’ rights to be heard, restore community unity, develop Master Plan for civic projects, and propose reasonable term limits.

My husband and I have been Atherton residents since 1998. We love our neighbors and Atherton’s rural character. It’s been a wonderful place for our 4 children and 4 grandchildren, with great schools, sports fields, safe environment and pastoral Holbrook-Palmer Park.

Together we have accomplished a lot, but there is more to do. I would be honored to represent you again. So, I ask for your vote on November 6 as we go forward to make our family-friendly community in Atherton even better.

  5. Elizabeth started working on the Town’s General Plan Committee in 2006, before moving to council in 2008.

    As a council member I have been able to see the wonderful experience, style, and passion she brings to the city council.

    She presents a very professional image for Atherton both inside and outside the community. She has brought together teams of residents to solve problems and plan for Atherton’s future.

    The best vote is to give her a second term on the council.

    My family and I support you Elizabeth. Being a resident here since 1956 I have seen many changes in the Atherton community over the years. I was impressed by the fact that you do not support the monstrosity proposed in Holbrook Palmer Park better known as the new library.
    I personally have never set foot in the old library, nor my family. The Internet has come of age and I sadly believe that libraries will be a thing of the past in years to come.
    It would be a shame to replace the Main House with something that would perhaps be used by 10%of residents.
