My Top 3 Priorities

  • Balanced Development-Balancing the key need for new housing with Cupertino's neighborhood look and feel.
  • Improve Transportation- Traffic is the biggest challenge for the City. We need fresh approaches to this problem that include a plan for a future of autonomous vehicles that can be virtually linked to create a "bus".
  • Preserve and enhance our parks and open space- We need to complete the City’s Park Master Plan and add enhanced amenities in Memorial Park.
