In just 12 hours, we should know who will represent us on the Board of Supervisors for the next four years. Regardless of the outcome, I am proud of the campaign we have run, and I’ve been inspired by all the wonderful people we’ve met and the ideas we’ve shared for how to help our community move forward.

The next District 2 Supervisor will be tasked with making our government more transparent and accountable to the people it serves. With that in mind, I wanted to share my vision for the future of community engagement in this, the innovation capital of the world.

If Santa Clara County is to remain competitive in the long-term, it is imperative that we harness the power of technology to spur economic development. Our county must be at the forefront of promoting innovations in technology, policy, and practice.

To make this happen, we need to reboot government and create a new model, Government 2.0. This will require the active engagement of residents, collaboration with technology leaders in Silicon Valley, and a commitment from our elected officials and government employees.

As a Supervisor, I will be committed to marshaling the necessary resources to make Santa Clara County a global model for innovative governance and provide the most effective and efficient services in order to ensure the highest and best possible outcomes for those of us who, directly or indirectly, benefit from those services.

Please click here to read the details of my plan, and if you have any time today, we’d love to see you at the campaign office to help us get out the vote. Don’t bother calling in advance, just come on down! Here’s a handy map to help you find us.

Thank you as always for your support.
