What a Ride!

What a ride! I am humbled by your support and encouragement over the past several months since I declared my candidacy for Fremont City Council.  I was moved by the dedication and talent of my steering committee, and the generosity of time and effort displayed by those of you who opened your homes for our many meet-and-greets or other campaign events.  I was privileged to receive donations from more than 200 donors, many from people in the community, as well as from friends in college and Washington High School, who do not now have any connection to Fremont, but who nevertheless supported my effort.   
 
While victory was not ours on Election Day, I will continue to serve our City on the Planning Commission and Oversight Board to our former Redevelopment Agency and serve the community at large through participating and promoting nonprofit organizations that impact, benefit and improve the lives of our residents in Fremont.
 
Last night on the Fremont Planning Commission, I heard the concerns expressed by the Fremont Human Relations Commission and affordable housing advocates, and made a motion that was carried unanimously by the Planning Commission to recommend to the Council that they look for alternative sources of revenue now and not later to provide diversity in our housing for all income levels.
 
Next week is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.  As a Board member of Fremont-based Abode Services which is dedicated to ending homelessness in our community, I am honored to be a master of ceremonies at a candlelight vigil at St. James Episcopal Church, 37051 Cabrillo Terrace next Friday, November 21 at 7 p.m.  Please join us.  And please support Abode Services.
 
I am also proud to be a Board member of Music at The Mission.  To learn more about our 10th Anniversary Season and to get email updates including our upcoming Gala on May 1, 2015, go to Music at The Mission and go to the "Contact" tab.
 
And as a Board Associate of the Fremont Education Foundation, please support our mission of "increased community involvement and investment" in FUSD schools, including our Innovative Education Grants program, by attending the Excellence in Education Gala on February 27, 2015 which will honor FUSD Board President Lara York as a Community Honoree and Robertson Junior High teach Paul Barry as the Education Honoree.  Go to Fremont Education Foundation to look for updates to purchase tickets in December and early January.
 
Again, thank you for your support! I look forward to continuing to work with each of you to make Fremont the best place it can be to live, work, and play.

A few post-election housekeeping items:
 
1) Signs: If you have a sign or see a sign please recycle it as soon as possible.
If you see a sign not picked up, please safely remove it and recycle it, or let me know so that we may recycle it.
 
2) As noted throughout the campaign, reaching over 90,000 voters is expensive - your donation of any amount (not exceeding $570 per person) will help us to cover the remaining election expenses. Visit our donation page to donate securely online or for instructions for sending a check by mail.
