Candidates for Fremont City Council working hard as election approaches

Their signs are plastered all over Fremont. Their advertisements and mailers have been arriving in residents' mailboxes for weeks. On Tuesday, Fremont voters will have a chance to choose two
out of nine candidates to serve on the next Fremont City Council.

The candidates are electronic manufacturing professional Syed Iqbal Ahmed; lawyer David Bonaccorsi; IT administrator Martin Froomin; retired Fremont police Officer Rick Jones; interpreter Nancy Liu; businessman Dirk Lorenz, Fremont Unified School District Boardmember Lily Mei, incumbent Councilmember Raj Salwan and community IT professional Rakesh Sharma.

There are two open positions. Salwan's four-year term comes to an end and Councilmember Anu Natarajan is terming out.

David Bonaccorsi

A Fremont native, Bonaccorsi, 53, spent the last seven years serving on the Fremont Planning Commission. He also chairs the Oversight Board to the Successor Agency of Fremont's dissolved redevelopment agency and has been involved with organizations such as Fremont Education Foundation, the city's Integrated Waste Management Advisory Committee, Abode Services and Fremont Unified School District's 2000 Health and Safety Bond, among others.

Bonaccorsi has been walking precincts trying to get residents out to vote and trying to engage them on the issues and concerns they have.

"It has been a tremendously fun ride getting to meet the residents of Fremont and participating in the forum. I am focused like a laser beam on getting to vote on Tuesday."

He said the issues voters are concerned about this year include what is happening in the Warm Springs "Innovation District"; continuing to make Fremont into a magnet for more high-tech and clean-tech companies; and creating a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly downtown.

Another issue Bonaccorsi said voters have voiced is creating a proper cultural performing arts center, so residents do not have to leave Fremont in order to have access to special events and

As of the last campaign finance disclosure, Bonaccorsi had received $64,000 in donations and spent almost $62,000.
