"Val Carpenter has demonstrated her commitment to serving our community and her leadership in addressing complex issues for nearly ten years. She's made a difference and I'm delighted to endorse her for re-election to the Los Altos City Council."

David Casas, Mayor of Los Altos, and
Former Los Altos School District Trustee
"The management skills Val brought to Council from her decades of experience as a senior executive in Silicon Valley have added significant value. She has been a key contributor in many areas."

Ron Packard, Los Altos Mayor Pro Tem
"Val truly represents all Los Altans and considers what is best for the entire community."

Lynette Lee Eng, Parks, Arts & Recreation Commissioner & past Chair
"I would like to heartily endorse Val Carpenter for re-election to the Los Altos City Council. Val has been a terrific support to me as a Parks, Arts, and Recreation Commissioner, and I found her advice and wise counsel very valuable during my time as Chair of the PARC. Val's hard work and dedicated service to Los Altos in many areas of community service have served this town well during her time on the City Council."

Karen Greguras, Parks, Arts, and Recreation Commissioner & former Chair
"I worked with Val on the Los Altos Historical Commission as well as the Los Altos History Museum 50th anniversary exhibit committee, where I learned that she's an effective leader who knows how to organize and motivate a team to get things done. More recently, I've followed her work on the Council with admiration for her effectiveness, especially when it is confronted by complex problems and problems where any practical solutions require unpopular decisions."

Don McDonald, Historian, Association of the Los Altos Historical Museum
"The best elected officials possess two important qualities, accessibility and the ability to listen with sincerity and thought to ideas and opinions from residents. Val embodies both. She has the strength of character to take action and make tough decisions when it counts."
