Your endorsement is important to me, and to undecided voters...
When I look at many candidates’ list of endorsements, I see the names of prominent people. It's easy to forget to ask why these people have endorsed that specific candidate. For example, the owner of large commercial properties likely has different priorities from the typical homeowner or renter. Then there are officials and others from outside Palo Alto. Are their communities facing similar problems? Do they know the endorsed candidate from working together to find mutual solutions? Or, could they just be swapping endorsements?
Before I was elected, I attended candidate events where many -- sometimes the majority -- of attendees were not Palo Alto residents but were officials and representatives of different interest groups. The disproportionate length of the introductions vs. the time spent discussing the issues caused me to wonder if these “important people”, rather than residents, had the candidate’s ear.
I am seeking your endorsement. The centerpiece of my campaign is what I have done and can do for Palo Alto residents. What better way to convince undecided voters than having endorsements from a wide range of residents, thereby showing my deep connection with the entire community. It may help convince the undecided voter, who may be your friend or neighbor, to take a closer look at what I stand for.
Thank you for your endorsement and your trust.
