Diana is exactly what the Atherton Town Council needs.

NONE of the current Council have been elected to their current terms.

DeGolia is the only one who has any commitment to serving the public interest.

Hopefully the usually indifferent voters in Atherton will elect Diana and Christine David to give DeGolia a majority that can renew the Council's ability to serve the community.

I am encouraged to see someone of Diana's caliber run for council. She has demonstrated a willingness to focus on the truly important issues and to represent residents based upon our long-term interests in having a safe, inclusive and sustainable community. I believe she will bring the right kind of priorities and family-oriented perspective to the council and I am excited to support her.
