My priorities

I want to improve the quality of life for the residents of Sunnyvale. Open communications with the residents is critical. I’m committed to listening to Sunnyvale residents to understand their concerns and work to solve the issues facing our community. This input is crucial to the vision, judgement and oversight that Council provides.

Finishing Downtown

It is imperative that we finish the Town Center–it is the heart of our community, and its opening will bring crucial sales tax dollars into our General Fund.  When I was first on the Planning Commission, I fought hard to improve the original developer’s design.  I Amy happy to see the progress made in the lsat 4 years.

I know the vision that the citizens wanted, and I’m committed to see that vision completed quickly and with quality.

Managing Growth

We need to control our growth to match the community’s vision and balance the needs of the neighborhoods with the needs of development.  We need Transportation Demand Management Plans for office and residential projects to limit their effect on our city.  We need to evaluate height and setbacks for each project to limit their impact on the community.

Reducing Traffic

We need to reduce traffic and enable alternative transportation (walking, biking and public transportation) for residents and workers.  I support more walkable communities of Mixed Use Zoning, Transportation Demand Management Plans for office and residential development, and walkable public transportation (including a City-wide shuttle).  I have worked to improve bike and pedestrian safety in our community.

Adding Housing

We must continue to look at ways to alleviate this Bay Area Crisis. I am a longtime affordable housing advocate and understand we need to protect a mixed stock of housing choices for our residents from the homeless to seniors, mobile home community residents, apartment renters, to homeowners. I have plans to add housing without negatively impacting our neighborhoods, and am a proponent add smaller units and “granny” units as well as housing near transportation.

Protecting the Environment

I was on the Planning Commission when many of our Green Standards were first put in place and have worked to make our community greener over the years. Sunnyvale needs to continue being a regional leader from an environmental and alternative transportation standpoint.  I’ve worked hard to protect our environment, reduce green-house gas emissions, and promote bike and pedestrian safety and use  in our community.

Fiscal

Sunnyvale’s budget is founded upon a 10 year balanced budget and a 20 year plan. We must ensure that we are forward thinking and make sure we balance adding resources and infrastructure upgrades with revenue projections.  I’ve worked in many small companies over the years, and I understand the need to balance short term needs with longterm goals.
