As a Bay Area native, I have found a home in Sunnyvale, the Heart of Silicon Valley, and I want to do my part to make sure Sunnyvale residents have the highest quality of life possible. I have the experience necessary to best serve the community as I have served the City of Sunnyvale in various capacities.
As an appointed Library Board Trustee, I have passionately advocated for the development of the Lakewood Branch Library and Learning Center. I have also volunteered at local book sales at the quarterly Friends of the Sunnyvale Library book sales.
As a Senior Congressional Aide to Congressman Ro Khanna, I worked diligently with Sunnyvale city staff and Sunnyvale-based businesses and non-profits to address the proposed budget cuts by President Trump. I gathered the input of the possible consequences on Sunnyvale’s quality of life from the proposed budget cuts to funding sources like Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), section 8 housing vouchers, energy subsidies and more. I also served as the Congressman’s representative on the Santa Clara County Federal Affairs Advocacy Task Force, where I provided feedback to the County Supervisors to make informed decisions on vital county services as well.
As a Congressional Aide to Congressman Mike Honda, I served as his point staffer for transportation policy and worked with the community to address the issue of airplane noise as well as bringing BART to Santa Clara. I also served as the Congressman’s commerce staffer, where I worked with local businesses and the Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce to address the needs of investment in education and workforce development programs, funding for micro-business loans, and legislative action on issues like patent reform.
As a current Housing & Transportation Policy Specialist to Councilman Chappie Jones in San Jose, I have had first hand experience in all of the operations a Councilman deals with. I am ready to serve the City of Sunnyvale as a Councilmember, and I ask for your vote to help me help our community.
