It has been ten years since I was first elected to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. It has been an honor serving the diverse, vibrant residents of this unique area. During my time in office, I have worked to maintain fiscal stability while preserving core programs in health care, public safety, and social services.

I have focused on making Santa Clara County a healthier community by addressing chronic disease, obesity, poor nutrition, and lack of physical activity. I have authored some of the strongest ordinances in the nation to protect residents from second-hand smoke and prevent youth smoking. I am working to improve access to healthier food and beverages to children and families, including an initiative to put clean, accessible, fresh drinking water in schools and public spaces across the County.

I have fought for our fair share of regional transportation dollars, resulting in millions for local highway improvements and public transit projects that reduce traffic congestion and create jobs. This includes the opening of a new interchange at 880/280/Stevens Creek and the BART extension into Silicon Valley, which is well underway.

As an environmentalist, I support policies that promote clean air, lower pollution, and increase renewable energy use. After creating an Office of Sustainability to coordinate our efforts, I called for the running of the County Government Center on 100% renewable energy. I also led the charge to clean up our waterways and lessen the amount of trash going into our landfills by reducing the amount of polystyrene and plastic bags used in our County.

I look forward to spending the remainder of my term continuing to promote the health and vitality of Santa Clara County.
