  2. Congratulations to Betsy, Tom and Jen. Our current Council, Sara Lillevand and her staff have worked incredibly hard to see that the best of Piedmont is preserved while assuring that we are in compliance with State law and that outsiders do not take over and make decisions on the Housing Element for us. I am delighted that Piedmont voters have overwhelmingly endorsed this approach.
