Position Papers
My Pledge Not to Take Developer Money
Fremont politicians regularly take campaign contributions from developers that stand to profit from City Council decisions. Many decisions Council has made have benefited developers tremendously. Instead of well-planned, balanced development, we have seen individual developments that don't fit well together and collectively hurt our city's economy.

I pledge not to take campaign contributions from developers! I will base any decisions on what is best for the residents and businesses of Fremont.

What Can the City Council Do For Our Schools?
When considering changes to the General Plan or when approving new development, our City Council must consider the impact to our schools.
Developing a More Resilient Economy in Fremont
Given the difficult economic times, our City's activities should be focused on improving our economy by creating jobs and helping local businesses get established here if Fremont.
