I know Carolyn personally and she will be a great city council woman. It has been a while since we have strong advocates for Belle Haven. She has the passion and the energy to render valuable service to Belle Haven and the City in Large.

Thanks to all, for your interest in my campaign and your suggestions as well as your support.

@ Joanna;

As an accountant, I will work to achieve long term fiscal health for the city. And I look forward to a cordial working relationship with the employees and staff in the city, as well as their union representatives. But I will always remember that my allegiance is to the citizens of Menlo Park, current and future.

Carolyn Clarke
