“I’ve known Margaret for more than a quarter of a century. I know what she stands for. She has a work ethic that is whatever it takes, she will do. She’s running for Town Council to represent you, the community. She’s respectful, she’s intelligent, she listens, she’s articulate, she’s financially savvy – you want all those things in your Los Gatos Council person.” 

- Mike Wasserman

Santa Clara County Supervisor and former Los Gatos Mayor


"Margaret has always impressed me as an astute businesswoman who has always showed a commitment to enhancing the vitality of businesses in Los Gatos. She has put that same energy into other community activities. Having her on Town Council will be an asset for those of us who live and work in Los Gatos." 

- Tina Orsi-Hartigan

Past Member, Los Gatos Union School District Board of Trustees


“Margaret is a natural leader. She knows how to bring people together and work for the common good. She has always been generous in sharing her experience and skills with others. I’m excited to see what great things she will accomplish on the Town Council.”

- Pete Jillo

Co-owner, Gardino’s Restaurant


“Margaret understands the importance of having a variety of businesses in order for our downtown to thrive. Retail, restaurants, personal service salons – we rely on one another to bring people to downtown and to encourage them to linger and enjoy all that we have to offer. Other cities are envious of our beautiful historic downtown, and I know Margaret will do all she can to preserve its special character.”

- Ross Hanson

Owner, Oak & Rye


“I love that Margaret recognizes the importance of our library to everyone in Los Gatos. We serve so many needs, and Margaret has consistently supported our efforts. She embodies the values that make Los Gatos such a special community for families, seniors, innovators and thinkers.”

- Sue Tuttle

Past Co-President,
Friends of Los Gatos Library


“Margaret is always willing to listen and be open to other viewpoints, and to use her business expertise to solve problems. I have seen first-hand her ability to use her collaborative skills to get all parties in a very difficult and complex issue come to a fair agreement. We need a listener and a collaborator with a strong business background on the Town Council.”

- Peter Hertan

Vice President, Los Gatos-Saratoga High School District Board of Trustees; Board of Directors, KCAT

“The best description of Margaret is ‘hard worker.’ She is willing to give it her all whether it is running a business as large as Domus, chairing the Planning Commission, or volunteering in local schools. She never says no to any need. We are supporting her for Town Council because she understands municipal government, is a good decision maker, and has a proven track record of devoting her time and talents to the betterment of Los Gatos.”

- Carol and Joe Hargett

Founders, Dolce Spazio

“I have listened to Margaret’s views and approach to governing the Town of Los Gatos, and feel she is the most qualified to get my vote.”

- Claudia Daemicke West

Los Gatos Resident

“I have known Margaret Smith for many years through her dedicated volunteering in our Los Gatos schools and beyond. She is a great asset to our town, and I absolutely support her for Town Council.”

- Dan Snyder
