Get to know candidates running in the 2018 Mid-term Election
As a San Jose native, I‘ve grown with the city and watched as our city, county, and region developed exponentially. As the innovation economy continues to grow our prosperous Valley, we are also experiencing the growing pains of a strong economy. The future leaders of Silicon Valley need to have the regional mindset and policy priorities necessary to lead this great region and improve our quality of life.
In just 10 questions, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Candidate Questionnaire delves into the issues most important to our region: Housing, Traffic, Education, and the future of the tech industry. The questionnaire is brief, yet provides enlightening views on a wide array of topics including the proposed Google development, Caltrain Electrification the Evergreen Initiative, public charter schools, et cetera. All of these topics we asked our candidates to weigh in on ahead of the June 5th primary election.
Reaching out to candidates over the past few weeks and collecting their answers, I realized that all of the candidates recognize the great challenges their positions entail. While their solutions may differ, they each care about our region immensely and want to move us forward.
