Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • • I will work to control uncontrolled growth in Fremont that is affecting our quality of life including traffic and schools. I will accept no money from Developers.
  • • I will Support economic developments in our Historic Districts. It is time to hire Economic development coordinators wholly responsible to improve each district.
  • • I will find ways to create more quality affordable housing

Experiencia

Biografía

Fremont has been my family’s home for 28 years. My wife is a family physician in Fremont, and we have two wonderful daughters. Having grown up in India, I am a proud product of the public education system. Prior to working as cancer researcher at Stanford University for 18 years, I lived and worked in Japan, the Caribbean, and Texas.

During my tenure as a Fremont Planning Commissioner, I participated in developing the General Plan 2030, supported businesses and affordable housing and helped revitalize our historic districts.

I have served my community as President of the Niles Rotary Club, Indo-American Chamber of Commerce Board Member, and Member of the Board of Trustees of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin.

Currently, I have the honor to serve as:

·         President and CEO, Indo-ABC, a non-profit organization

·         Chair, Ohlone College Foundation

·         Chair, Ohlone College Bond Oversight Committee

·         Board Member, Life ElderCare and The Salvation Army

 

I understand how our local government works. I’m an independent thinker and a good listener. Furthermore, I am not aligned with any special interests, businesses, or organizations that would preclude me from voting on issues that are important to our city and community. If elected, as your Councilmember:

·        I will work to control uncontrolled growth in Fremont that is affecting our quality of life including traffic and schools. I will accept no money from Developers.

·        I will Support economic developments in our Historic Districts. It is time to hire Economic development coordinators wholly responsible to improve each district.

·        I will find ways to create more quality affordable housing., and

·        I will work to improve public safety.

 

As an avid marathon runner, I know what it takes to set goals, make plans, remain dedicated, and effectively accomplish tasks. I am committed to serve Fremont residents with integrity and dedication. I would be honored to have your support and vote. Thank you!!
