Preguntas de League of Women Voters (4)

What experience related to city government would you bring to the City Council?
Respuesta de Chris Roth:

Growing up, my parents, a nurse for more than 38 years and a police captain who dedicated his career to making his community safer, stressed the importance of family and community. To this day, I hold those values close to my heart, and I'm working to teach the same lessons to my five-year-old daughter, Ashley.

I've been working hard and taking action for our community for years, and I know that listening to our neighbors is the best way to improve our community. As a member and now Chair of the San José Library and Early Education Commission, I strongly advocated for the passage of the Library Parcel Tax Renewal and for increasing library hours citywide from four to six days a week (including at all three libraries in District 6), and I helped raise thousands of dollars for the San José Public Library Foundation to fund programs like the Summer Reading Challenge that serves thousands of our City’s youth.

As President of the Willow Glen Neighborhood Association I worked with the City of San José to implement the Lincoln Avenue Road Diet, which has already shown increased safety for pedestrians, bikers and vehicles in Downtown Willow Glen. The traffic calming measures that I've fought for have also resulted in increased pedestrian and bike traffic, resulting in local economic activity and enhanced quality of life for residents, business owners, employees, and our kids.

By working hard and putting our community first, we can create a safer, stronger San José. I'm teaching my daughter that lesson, and with your help, I’ll bring that to City Hall as well.
