With the exception of board secretary Alice Hazelgrove, who is moving, the current board members have agreed to continue to serve if reelected. Linda Harvey had earlier offered to serve on the Board, and was appointed a member-at-large (i.e., not an officer) in January to keep the board at seven members when Bill Cranston resigned due to work commitments.

Linda has volunteered to be our secretary. That leaves the member-at-large position open, and the Nominating Committee (John Canata and Alice Hazelgrove) has chosen Baidra Murphy as its candidate for that seat.

 Linda Harvey for Secretary: Linda (and Patrick) Harvey moved to Thaddeus in 2011 after their 2010 wedding. Pat has been a Monta Loma resident since 2002, and Linda raised a son who attended Monta Loma, Crittenden, and Los Altos High. Both Linda and Pat have worked in many of the high-tech companies of Silicon Valley. Linda is currently a substitute teacher for all the public schools in Mountain View. They volunteer for the Spring Fling, Ice Cream Social, and progressive dinners, and have made many friends in the neighborhood.

   Baidra Murphy for Member at Large: Baidra and her family moved to Mardell in 2006 when their son was six months old. Baidra has enjoyed getting to know many neighbors and loves seeing her son play with the neighborhood kids on the street. Baidra is a past member & director of the Rotary Club of Los Altos and is the Managing Broker of The Troyer Group at Intero Real Estate.

The officers’ positions are described here.
