Info(from campaign website)

I am a native of San Jose, whose family has lived here for five generations. My wife and I have lived in District 9 for 10 years. When choosing where to purchase our first home, we didn’t have to look much further than this area where we are currently raising our two young children. I hope to serve as San Jose City Councilman for District 9 to preserve this community for their generation.

I will focus on improving efficiency within city government and save substantial funds that could be placed back into our school systems. This would include reducing costs by switching to free open-source software within government offices and reducing print publications published by the city.

I will maintain San Jose’s reputation for being the safest large city in the US. Provide support to outreach services to reduce the growing homeless population.

Increase the health of our economy by bringing businesses and jobs back to San Jose, and restore this valley to its place as the world’s leader of innovation and technology.
