Post COVID Economy Reboot
Our communities have been devastated by COVID-19. As city council member for District 3, I will be on the forefront of city's response effort and would develop a comprehensive economic incentives to revive our neighborhoods and residents safe.
The best solution for homelessness is to add housing. Before we get there, we can add interim solutions: making sure our shelters are attractive to the unhoused residents, making public services available to the current camps to keep the camps clean.
San Jose has always embraced our diversity. It's what makes our city so great and beautiful. But that diversity is threatened by our shortage of housing that a diverse population can afford. We need to offer different options: beautiful and reasonably priced homes, affordable houses, and supported housing to accommodate our diverse residents.
Good transportation not only attracts good companies to relocate to San Jose, it also reduces traffic and congestion, making our environment better. San Jose will have BART, high speed rail, and electrified Caltrain connecting us around the Bay and to the Central Valley and Beyond. We will also build transit-oriented housing to make these stations living stations. In addition, we will need a local mobility network to transport our residents to these stations.
Improving Our Schools
Our children only get one shot at a great education. The coronavirus pandemic has taken a tremendous toll on our children's learning. Moving forward, we need to afford parents and teachers alike the support they need. We need to demand reduced class sizes. We must also invest in mental health education, which in addition to its health benefits, also yields better learning. Finally, all children are given options to choose what they want to achieve. We will facilitate mentorship opportunities between corporation and schools early so children can be exposed to career choices early.
