Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Joe Pirzynski

Candidate for
Council Member; Town of Los Gatos

This information is provided by the candidate

Having a leadership role in Los Gatos has been both challenging and rewarding. I pride myself on being available and responsive to all members of our community. The willingness of individuals and neighborhoods to ask for my assistance in times of need has been very gratifying, and has confirmed for me that small town government is government at its best. I am particularly proud of our accomplishments during my tenure as mayor, including the initiation of community events like the 4th of July celebration and the Los Gatos Film Festival. These events provided opportunities for us to experience in a new way the charms of small town life.

Nonetheless, there is still much to be done. Our nation's weakened economy puts at risk the proactive approach we have taken to enhancing public services and facilities. Traffic calming and street repair remain significant priorities for many neighborhoods. The needs of our youth must be better addressed. We must remain vigilant to the impacts of residential and commercial development. Although we have made great strides on these issues, we have much yet to achieve.

My years as Planning Commissioner, founder of the Los Gatos Disaster Aid Response Team, and especially the last four as Town Councilmember have provided me the experience necessary to respond to the next critical period of our history. I will use my background and experience to bring stability to the council and evolve appropriate solutions to the challenges we continue to face as a community.

By working together, we can guarantee Los Gatos will continue to be the best place in the entire valley to live, work, raise a family, and experience community.
