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.

Lydia Kou is one of the hardest-working councilmembers this city has ever had.  She is totally committed to Palo Altans and takes on hard, unglamorous problems like Aircraft Noise that many others would skirt.  Lydia is deeply engaged with our community and unstintingly puts in the time and sweat equity that it takes to do the job right.  I am really happy Lydia is on our council; she is a Resident's Councilmember, and we are lucky to have her here in Palo Alto.

Eric Filseth, former Mayor
