David Lewis, Chair – I’m a 5-year resident of Mountain View, having retired from an engineering research management position on the East Coast, where I had nearly 40 years experience in community associations. As Chair,

I frequently lobby Council members on behalf of quality of life issues in our neighborhood.
Jack Perkins, Secretary I grew up in Palo Alto and I’ve lived in Old Mountain View for 22 years both as a renter and home owner. My wife and I try to go to the beach at least once a week. If I ever leave OMV it will be to a place very close to the ocean. I’ve been studying the Bhagavad Gita for the past 3 years or so (seriously folks) and love fishing and hunting. I am an executive recruiter and work with clients in India and Silicon Valley.
