This is great to see! Mountain View committed to providing free period products in women's bathrooms within the city this past January, expanding on a program initiated by Mayor Kamei. It would be excellent for the city to take the step that the county has to include free products in all bathrooms since trans men menstruate as well. Hopefully other cities in the Bay follow suit soon too.
