The Board of Education, staff and students of the Palo Alto Unified School District join other members of the community in mourning the passing of Gary Fazzino. Mr. Fazzino was the mayor of Palo Alto for two years, served eighteen years on the Palo Alto City Council and was a long-time supporter of the Palo Alto Unified School District. He was a proud graduate of Palo Alto Unified School District schools, including Palo Alto High School. Over nearly two decades, he was a consistent, visible advocate for District parcel tax and bond measures. He served on the advisory council for the Palo Alto Partners in Education, the District’s education foundation, and also on the District’s Parcel Tax Oversight Committee.
