Steady as she goes : Evilsizer retires after 39 years with town of Los Altos Hills

In 1976, Jeanne Evilsizer graduated from college, got married and started working for the town of Los Altos Hills. She liked the job in the permitting department so much that she stayed 39 years.

Evilsizer, 60, called it a career and officially retired Friday from her position as a building/planning technician. A retirement party at Town Hall followed. The large gathering included current and former council members and staff, friends and family. In a final ode to stability, Evilsizer drove off in the same car she drove on her first day to work – a 1964 two-door Chevelle.
