DEMONSTRATED LEADERSHIP, PROGRESSIVE VALUES
I am Sunnyvale’s first directly-elected Mayor, after already serving more than four years on the Sunnyvale City Council. I have dedicated my life to community service for the last 20 years, and I have a record of actively representing and giving a voice to those who often feel forgotten in our diverse community.
During COVID-19, I’ve worked hard to build a coalition to support those most in need, from providing assistance to local families to helping small business owners survive. The pandemic has highlighted the divide in our cities. We must do better to bridge that divide and provide more safeguards and better educational support to our working families.
My top priorities include:
Protecting and engaging our residents and small business owners during COVID19, and leading our community into recovery
Developing safe active transportation options for bicycles and pedestrians, investing in improved transit solutions and neighborhood walkability
Encouraging new affordable and missing-middle housing, protecting the housing we have, creating livable villages, and pushing for financial tools at the state level
Locally, I am a longtime member of the Sunnyvale Democratic Club, Dean Democratic Club, and a founding member of Livable Sunnyvale. I have been active with grassroots support for Democratic candidates throughout California and advocated directly with our state representatives for progressive environment action, housing and transportation.
I am running now because I believe the Democratic Party is at a crossroads and has to make real progress and set a course to tackle the immense challenges we face.
