This is my second time running for City Council. I am interested in giving back to the community. I currently serve as President on my Home Owners Association, and as Director of the Fremont Cribbage Club. I have degrees in Computer Science, Business Administration and Systems Engineering from San Jose State University. I taught part time at San Jose State for 12 years and served on academic committees. Now, I work just one job as a Software Developer.
My main focus is on maintaining the community. This means fiscal responsibility, street repair, lighting, promoting local business and appropriately staffing services. I want to make sure that the city remains a safe environment for our citizens to raise their families and a successful location for businesses to thrive.
The City of Fremont also has a debt that needs to be paid. Paying the minimum is not sufficient. While the City is doing a good job now, I think we can do better to pay down our debt. As for the revenue to be generated from the downtown project, that won’t be realized for a couple of years. In the mean time, our debt will grow. We should be paying more of our debt down in these times when we have the money. We should brand our city to attract business for our local merchants. How about a Restaurant Week in Fremont?
This is a great year for Fremont. You have several qualified candidates to choose from. We all have the same passion for wanting to do what is best for the city. Everyone brings a different set of skills to the table. I encourage everyone to vote for their favorite candidate and throw that second vote my way. You will not be disappointed. Thank you.
