Endorsement Meeting for Sunnyvale City Council Special Election

Sunnyvale City Council Seat #4 was unexpectedly vacated, which requires a special election in August to fill this seat.

June 7th Election

The California Primary on June 7th is approaching fast and this year California will have a major impact on the Presidential election.

To volunteer for Hillary Clinton's campaign contact Silvia Yacoub at syacoub@hillaryclinton.com or (231) 670-6889.

To volunteer for Bernie Sander's campaign contact Eliana Jimenez, at elianajimenez@berniesanders.com or (559) 579-2734.

Measure A

Also on the June ballot, voters throughout Santa Clara County will be asked to modestly increase the portion of the county general fund dedicated to parks. The ballot question — known as Measure A — would update the Park Charter Fund. The measure is not a tax. Instead, it changes the percentage of the county budget that automatically gets allocated for the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department.

More information about Measure A can be found at the yesonparks website.
