Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a score when I can improve emergency water supplies while preserving parks for families. Every time I play with my kids, I am reminded how valuable it will be to have beautiful El Camino Park preserved after we ďŹ nish building our much-needed emergency water reservoir underneath it. I work with a large team whose task is to upgrade the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire emergency water supply and storage system. Improving that system for the beneďŹ t of future generations is by far my proudest achievement. Learn more about our emergency water system at CityofPaloAlto.org/ EmergencyWater

â&#x20AC;&#x153;THE BEST PIZZA WEST OF NEW YORKâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Ralph Barbieri, KNBR 680

e bake our pizzas in brick ovens, the way tradition-minded Italians have been baking pizzas for hundreds of years.
