I’m working to provide a healthier environment for my kids—and yours. It’s very satisfying to help the City of Palo Alto be more energy efficient and lower our carbon emissions. But what really drives me is my children. I want them to grow up in a world that is cleaner than the one I grew up in. The efforts we make today will have a lasting effect on generations to come. That’s why my work involving electric vehicles and smart grid applications is a small step toward the greater goal of a healthier Palo Alto, and a cleaner planet. For ideas on what you can do to improve the planet for your kids visit CityofPaloAlto.org/SustainableHome

Your reliable natural gas supply is thanks in part to my chemistry teacher, Mrs. Smith. It takes a lot of planning and negotiating to ensure the natural gas we use every day arrives safely and on budget. It’s part science, part economics, and part stock market. My inspiration for studying engineering and energy planning came from my high school chemistry teacher. I hope I too can inspire your daughters who have an interest in science to chase their dreams and make a difference. Learn more about our gas supply planning at CityofPaloAlto.org/utilities —click on “Gas Utility Long Term Plan.”
