They Talk About It ..... I DO it.

 

WHY I AM RUNNING: 

  • I am tired of the BACK DOOR deals which allow developers to secure council votes BEFORE public input.
  • Frustrated with the lack of progress on the downtown  (Please see my 5 Step Plan to Improve our Downtown and Gilroy which we presented to council, city administrator, and mayor.)
  • Protect Measure H, passed by the 12,000 voters in 2016, which maintains Gilroy's small-town character, protects open space/farmland/water resources (while still maintaining growth) encourages downtown and economic investment/growth, stops sprawl and the traffic it creates, and puts control in the voter's hands.
  • The U.S Government’s study “Getting to Smart Growth” showed that open space, working land, quality of life and a vibrant downtown were the determining factors in Hewlett Packard, Intel and Hyundai’s decision to build in Portland, Oregon which validates why we passed Measure H. 

MY OPPONENT DANIEL HARNEY:

  • OPPOSED MEASURE H.  "So if you look at that comprehensively, that is why I'm against Measure H." (Gilroy Dispatch, October 14, 2016.)
  • VOTED “YES” TO APPROVE THE HECKER PASS SPECIFIC PLAN—AGRI-TOURISM PROJECT
