Candidate for
Council Member; City of East Palo Alto

This information is provided by the candidate

There are threats to keeping East Palo Alto, East Palo Alto. Those threats are real because the secret is out, East Palo Alto is a wonderful place to live and raise a family, period.

That's why I endorse Larry Moody for East Palo Alto City Council. Larry Moody is a leader that will not just preserve the city; he will join with other likeminded leaders and community people to restore the city to its rightful place in San Mateo County, California and the United States. Larry Moody is tempered and level headed. He has years of unblemished service to children, residents and the people of East Palo Alto. Larry Moody has a history of finding, creating and bringing resources to the City of East Palo Alto for the betterment of all its residents. Larry Moody is first and foremost a leader with a proven record of serving the people.

There are others seeking your vote to serve on the city council. My question for you is without a seat on the council where would they be? I know where Larry has been prior to seeking a seat on the council. He has fought for your issues without a seat and will fight even more with a seat. Larry Moody fought to improve the educational opportunities for your children both as an elected school board member, a parent and advocate for quality education. Larry spends sleepless nights walking the streets talking to young people about their lives in the community, and standing with the families of shooting and crime victims.

While some seeking your vote talk about change, Larry Moody has a history of continuous unbroken service to the people of East Palo Alto. In all efforts that were and are good for the residents of East Palo Alto, Larry Moody is there.

Hi I am supporting Larry Moody in his run for the City Council. I have worked with Larry for the past three years on a variety of projects,including the following:

1. Making it Happen for our Children, The goal of this program is develop a System for Human Development that would support our children and their families from Birth to Career

2. The development of the Police Activities League, this program provides youth with opportunities to participate in Football, Basketball, Golf, and Rugby.

3. Larry was a key voice in the development of the guidelines and policy for the operation Measure C.

4. Developing employment opportunities for our citizens returning from Prison.

5. He has been a major player in my attempts to raise funds and secure equipment for the East Palo Alto Jr Golf Program

One of the major issues facing our community at this time is the High School Dropout that is a least 60%. We can not have a viable community when on 4 out of every ten kids graduate from High School. Larry realizes this and is committed to working with the Schools and Non Profit Community solve this problem.

Larry has spent has spent a tremendous amount of volunteer time, energy and money trying to develop programs and services that will improve the quality of life for all who live in East Palo Alto. He has proven his commitment to this community. when I am going to support some one for political office I look for the following things, Intelligence, Commitment, an analytical mind, a vision for the future, and the ability to communicate their ideas all people. Larry passes the test.


As a community leader and ordained clergyman I enthusiastically support Mr. Larry Moody and his bid to join the East Palo Alto City Council. Mr. Moody has a proven track record as a consensus builder. I've known him for the past 12 years and have marveled at his concern for the people of East Palo Alto, especially our young people. Mr. Moody knows how to build bridges within the community as well with individuals and leaders in the cities that surround us. I feel that he is the right man to bring new energy, passion and perspective to the CIty Council. He has my full support.
