Good morning Los Gatos. As we enter yet another week of Shelter in Place – one that many of us hoped would mark the end of isolation – we are instead confronted with the reality of a relentlessly persistent pandemic. The protective actions being requested of us at this point seem, if anything, more demanding than ever before. All the more reason to remember exactly why, and for whom, we are doing what we are – for our loved ones, for ourselves, for the most vulnerable among us, and most importantly now, for those healthcare professionals who fight for us all by fighting the virus. As they work tirelessly day in and day out, let’s take our hats off to them by putting our masks on. This small gesture can make a big difference. So get out your best bandana, an old ski mask, or a spare piece of fabric you didn’t know you had lying around, and tie it on. By supporting others in this and other ways, we can find the hope and inspiration it will take to continue to do what we can to slow the virus’s spread and save lives.

We can do this Los Gatos. Our town is unique in so many ways, and now we can be unique through our leadership, our creativity in finding ways to help others, and in our resolve to see this through.

Once again, thank you for everything each of you is doing every day to keep us all safe and healthy.

It takes a Town.

Marcia Jensen
Los Gatos Mayor
