Portola Valley planning manager Leslie Lambert recovering from serious head injury

 

Leslie Lambert, the planning manager for the town of Portola Valley, is on extended medical leave to recover from a serious head injury that came as a result of a fall at home in Mountain View on Jan. 21, Town Manager Angie Howard told The Almanac Tuesday (Feb. 1).

No bones were broken but she suffered a serious concussion, Ms. Howard said. "Her prognosis is good," she added. "They expect her to recover fully, but they have no idea how long it's going to take."

"Her smile (and attitude) is what makes her the heart of Town Hall," Mayor Ted Driscoll said in a call informing The Almanac of Ms. Lambert's situation. "She is friends with every person in town. We want people to know why she is not returning their calls."
