Community character

I returned to my hometown Palo Alto not for a job but to raise a family. My wife and I craved an unpretentious community that emphasized good, safe, public schools, libraries, and parks, and made sure the necessary resources and attention where there to sustain them. Now Palo Alto feels more like a “companies town,” where vested interests and governance is obsessed with being “world class,” and creating “vibrancy,” and where “innovation” in the service of private gain is the highest form of accomplishment.
