Small and local businesses are the heart of Palo Alto’s economy and one of the things which makes our city so desirable. These businesses were hard hit by Covid and the pandemic’s repercussions. I will collaborate with our businesses to make changes that will help them thrive including working with Palo Alto’s new Economic Development Team to bring viability, visibility and variety to the forefront.

“As a small business owner I have spent many hours over the last 20 years participating in city meetings . Doria has been a constant presence in our city and will come with a solid understanding of past and present issues. I have the utmost respect for Doria and her vision for Palo Alto I will be supporting and voting for her and suggest you do the same.”
