A Message From Los Gatos Mayor Marcia Jensen
Good afternoon Los Gatos,
First, I want to thank you for signing up for Town notifications, including our weekly “What’s New.” It is so important now that we remain connected, and What’s New along with other Town information outlets are a great way to keep up-to-date on available Town services, upcoming Council meetings, and those learning and sharing opportunities our Library continues to provide through its e-books collection, and online storytimes and workshops. Please also check the dedicated COVID-19 page on the Town’s website to find resources that can assist in either finding the help you need or in finding ways to help others.
Second, 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,
Mayor Marcia Jensen
