Redwood City Friends and Neighbors,
Four years ago your support and confidence in my first campaign for Redwood City, City Council was instrumental in my success on Election Day. I can hardly believe that my re-election campaign will be this November 2013. I am humbled to now serve as the Vice Mayor of Redwood City and work very hard every day on the Council’s four priorities:
- Financial Sustainability
- Public Safety
- Infrastructure Investment
- Statutory Compliance & Transparency
Most importantly though, the number one issue that I have championed is to preserve and enhance our quality of life in Redwood City for residents and businesses.
Together, with my council colleagues and a dedicated professional staff, we have accomplished significant milestones, including:
- A balanced budget every year without drastic cuts to essential neighborhood and city services
- Crime is down over 42% over the past five years
- Our fire department continues to respond quickly and timely to medical and fire issues
- We have received funding for the design of a new 101/Woodside Road interchange to reduce traffic congestion and improve pedestrian and bicycle safety
- We continue to meet our legal obligations.
Our economic vitality continues to prosper with over 1,700 units of housing under construction in and near our Downtown. Also, Redwood Tower, a 300,000 sq., ft. office building will be ready to break ground this spring.
In addition, our quality of life in Redwood City is tied to the quality of life in San Mateo County. As a councilmember, I have worked hard to make sure that the County is a great place to live and to work. I am fortunate to serve as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of SamTrans, Chairman of the San Francisco Airport Community Roundtable, and Vice Chair of the Peninsula Congestion Relief Alliance. In each of these roles, I work to improve the quality of life for residents and enhance our local economy to attract and retain businesses.
I ask for your support, endorsement and help in my re-election campaign for Redwood City Council. Continuing the renaissance of Downtown Redwood City and preserving our quality of life is a constant effort, one that I am committed to work hard for. Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments and issues with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support!
City of Redwood City
