Mayor Rick DeGolia Endorsment

We want to thank Atherton Mayor Rick DeGolia for his endorsement of Diana Hawkins-Manuelian. While by virtue of putting herself on the ballot, Diana is “challenging” the two incumbents, as Angela Swartz of the Almanac describes it. In fact, Diana has stepped up in light of the issues the town faces to offer her experience, judgement and values in service of the town, provide Atherton residents with more choices.

We believe the Almanac’s article entitled, “Atherton mayor endorses newcomer for council over incumbent,” provides a fair representation of one of the most important choices that residents face.
