Portola Valley: Wengert seeks re-election to council

 

Ann Wengert, whose term on the Portola Valley Town Council expires in November, said she plans to run for re-election and that she will take out the necessary filing papers the day after she returns from her cross-country bicycle trip.

"I am happy to announce that I will be running for re-election for the Portola Valley Town Council," Ms. Wengert said in an e-mail. "I am very enthusiastic about continuing to serve on the Council and tackling the challenges facing our community."

If her candidacy is contested, it would be Ms. Wengert's first election. The council appointed her in 2007 because she and incumbent Steve Toben had no one running against them.

Mr. Toben's seat will be open since he said recently that he has no plans to run again after two terms on the council.

Candidates have until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, to file papers, which are available in Portola Valley Town Hall at Town Center at 765 Portola Road. Town Hall is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 to 5 p.m.
