Letter: Support Portola Valley's Measure O

Measure O gives Portola Valley residents the opportunity to renew our commitment to supporting strong local schools.

My wife and I moved to Portola Valley nearly 10 years ago because we loved the character and feel of the town and felt it was a great community in which to raise a family. Our two children are both attending Portola Valley schools and are receiving a fantastic education. My kids are consistently challenged in the classroom and are really enjoying their experience at Ormondale and Corte Madera.

Over the years, our community has shown its strong support for local schools by approving local school funding that remains in our community. This month, we have the opportunity to renew this funding to make sure that our schools continue to have high quality teachers, challenging academic programs, as well as art and music programs.

As I have spoken to other residents, many of whom do not have children in schools, I have been very pleased by the broad support for Measure O. The community understands the importance and value of providing our students with the best education possible in our local schools. This support reminds me why we moved to Portola Valley in the first place.

Please join me — and many others — in voting yes on Measure O.

Stephen Cassani, Cervantes Road, Portola Valley
