My Top 3 Priorities

  • Introduced Participatory Budgeting (PB) which gave residents the opportunity to create their own projects and vote on how to use city funds to revitalize their neighborhoods.
  • Advocated for traffic calming measures along major corridors that pedestrians use on a frequent basis so that youth, seniors, and anyone who walks or bikes in East San José stays safe along their route.
  • Added hours and days of service for our local libraries resulting in more residents using our libraries and utilizing important enrichment programming.
