Sarah Wernikoff has been a huge asset to our town from the moment she arrived and began volunteering. We are lucky that she has decided to run for the Council and I sincerely hope she is voted in. She is smart, balanced in her views, energetic and kind.

Sarah has been an inspiring leader for the eight years I have known her in the Portola Valley school district. Whether she is encouraging involvement from the parents in our community, creating thoughtful acts of kindness for our hard working teachers, or working hard to make sure our schools thrive well into the future....she is a hard working, well informed team player. It's about time she put her name in for town council! She's got my vote and hopefully yours as well!!

Sarah will bring a new voice and fresh perspective to our Town Council. I know her as a hands-on community member who gets things done.

I've known Sarah for 12 years, and she has demonstrated her commitment to our schools and community. I think Sarah will bring an open mind while being rooted in the town's values of volunteerism and respect for the natural world. I can't wait to vote for Sarah for PV Town Council!

I'm so thrilled that Sarah has decided to run for our Town Council. I've known her for 10 years, and have worked with her on the Portola Valley Schools Foundation. When I decided to start up a new program within the Foundation, Sarah was a mentor, offering sound advice and encouragement. She's a natural leader, and cares deeply about her community. We'd be so lucky to have her in this role!

I have known Sarah for 14 years since she first moved with her family to Portola Valley. She is as smart, capable and dedicated as they come. We have volunteered on various community and school-related projects together, most significantly during our time together on the Portola Valley Schools Foundation. She is exactly the kind of voice and next gen leadership that I would love to see represented on our Town Council. Sarah gets things done. She has my vote!

Ann Wengert has been a wonderful level headed servant to the town. Thank you Ann for your many years of level headed support to PV government. You will be missed.
