My Top 3 Priorities

  • Stop the hyper-growth which is strangling our schools and streets. Let residents, not bureaucrats, control how much we are to grow.
  • Save and enhance our parks, libraries, and green spaces. Build more parks. Co-locate libraries with schools to share costs and put libraries where kids can walk to them. Make Butcher's Corner a park!
  • Have Sunnyvale join San Francisco, Lancaster, Culver City, etc. in requiring solar panels on all new construction. Join cities around the world in becoming "Carbon Neutral" by 2035. Electric car charging stations at all public buildings..
