Bill is our neighbor, so we know his thoughtfulness, integrity and ethics. Now that I see his impressive education and experience working with our schools and kids, I am even more convinced that Bill is the right person for the School Board.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Bill Youstra and his family over the past couple of years mainly through our mutual volunteer efforts.
Last year, we were lucky enough to have Bill coach my son's soccer team. My son really did not want to play. He was only half interested. Bill's coaching made ALL of the difference! He was very positive and supportive. His soft spoken encouragement really helped my shy first grader learn to love the sport.
Bill is an intuitive listener who genuinely cares about people and our community. His background in education and technology would make him a perfect addition to our Portola Valley School Board.
Please mail in your ballot and vote for Bill Youstra!
