People always win
I believe in making citizen-centric choices.
I believe in standing by the people.
As an elected leader, I believe in one thing — to make fearless citizen-centric choices to address the top challenges of my constituents. As a Saratoga city councilmember, we took on an investor owned water utility company and helped reject many of their rate increase proposals that would have adversely impacted a million residents of Silicon Valley. Not many had tried doing something that we managed to. We took on the rising crime challenge in Saratoga that no other elected leader wanted to touch, and we reduced burglaries by almost 50% with a focused, innovative approach — the largest drop compared to any other comparable Silicon Valley city. We stood all alone against the hillside Mountain Winery Development project in Saratoga. We the people ultimately won.
That is how we got the most votes in Saratoga’s election history during the re-election run last year.
How? Simply, by doing the right thing for the people and just taking that first step to address something wrong. We brought the hi-tech energy, innovation, “outside the box” thinking and the “getting things done” attitude to the role of an elected leader;. The result has been very encouraging! This is exactly what I will continue doing in Congress.
For this Congressional run, I will NOT be accepting large corporate donations or allow myself to be lobbied and bought by special interests. Our run is to represent the voice and the needs of the people.
We believe that rejecting corporate and PAC money is a very powerful statement on the integrity that our elected leaders should exhibit in America.
That is why we are going to win this race!
