Thank you! Over the course of this election, we made an intensive effort to reach voters with our message of transparency and accountability, all for the sake of providing Santa Clara County residents with representation which they can be proud of.
Through a dozen candidate forums, stakeholder interviews, neighborhood meet-and-greets, phone banking, and precinct walking, we heard about their needs and desires for open, responsible, and effective government. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in reaching our final goal.
We knew this race was a David and Goliath scenario. But I ran for this seat because I believe one person can make a difference in the transformation of government that is needed.
I know that we accomplished a lot through our campaign. We highlighted issues that matter. And we cast a wide net, assembling a true coalition of supporters, reflecting the diversity of the district — county retirees, good government advocates, business leaders, neighborhood activists, county services clients, and so many more.
I want to thank my friends, family, and hundreds of endorsers, contributors, volunteers, and additional supporters and well wishers who helped propel us forward every day. You stepped up bravely and visibly to walk this path with me.
Finally, I want to thank all of the voters who care about improving our community and believe in government as a partner. There is much to do to make this a reality.
Thank you, once more, for your support. I look forward to seeing you again soon!
