San Jose needs a jolt in the arm to revitalize our local small businesses, fill up our empty storefronts,  enliven our commercial streets, and celebrate our city’s history and culture. I plan to lead initiatives that celebrate our community’s diversity, increase local pride, and spur economic growth that benefits all residents.

Pillar 1: Growing Small Businesses
Pillar 2: Celebrating Our City

I plan to continue celebrating these places, as I have a record of:

  • I launched the effort to bring a farmers market back to Midtown San Jose, which opened in the Rose Garden at Lincoln High School in 2018
  • As a Shasta / Hanchett Park Neighborhood Association Board member, I made the motion to dedicate $400 to paint rainbow crosswalks on The Alameda.
  • I initiated the successful effort to rename a street in San Jose after America’s first black president, Barack Obama Blvd. 
  • I shepherded the process to create and make available apparel with designs that celebrate iconic places in San Jose, including the Rose Garden, Alum Rock Park, Mt. Hamilton, & Japantown
