Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Transportation: Furthering my existing pilots in student carpool, senior curb-to-curb service, safer bicycling infrastructure for students and families, expanded walking trails, VTA, transit-hub, and bus route signaling optimization.
  • Housing: Continuing my work to ensure community benefits (FUHSD, CUSD, bike paths and trails, transit hub, etc), retail, parks, and housing (teachers, senior, affordable, and market rate) are delivered in the Vallco project.
  • Environment: Moving forward with my work on green house gas reductions (SVCE), increasing trees, preserving open space, encouraging water conservation through use of recycled and grey water, and developing higher standards for Lehigh.

My family and I are proud to call Cupertino our home.  We've lived here over 23 years. Our daughter is a graduate of Cupertino's excellent public school system and lives in the Bay Area. I too am a product of local schools. I took business pre-requisite courses at De Anza College and received my MBA from San Jose State University.


I was elected to the Cupertino City Council in 2014. Subsequently I served as Vice Mayor in 2016 and then Mayor in 2017. Due to my years of work on transportation issues and my two years on VTA Policy Advisory Committee, I was also selected to the Board of the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) in 2016.  I also serve on two Airplane Noise Relief Committees that includes FAA, SJC Airport, and Cities Association. I can assure you I work full time for the well being of Cupertino residents. 


Even with my City Council duties I remain deeply involved in community activities. I am very accessible and enjoy hearing inputs from residents. I enjoy encouraging youth and participating in their events. When I was Mayor, I attended over 50 events involving each of Cupertino's diverse ethnic groups.
