My Top 3 Priorities

  • Housing for All - Ensuring that everyone has access to a home in Sunnyvale whether they be a tech worker, a fire fighter, a police officer, a teacher or a working family
  • Reducing Traffic and Increasing Access to Public Transit - Hiring more traffic enforcement officers, increased walk-ability in neighborhoods and urban village centers as well as traffic enforcement measures in residential neighborhoods
  • Protecting our Environment - Finishing the renovation of the Waste Water Pollution Control Plant, increasing access to alternative green forms of transportation, and reducing vehicle miles traveled to urban centers
