In These Challenging Economic Times, Fremont Needs a Leader Who Advocates Fiscal Responsibility and the Interests of Fremont’s Citizens, Not Large Developers
Stimulate Local Economy- We need to accelerate our economy by streamlining the permitting process and treating small businesses as partners rather than adversaries. Fremont's industrial and business areas should be preserved for living wage jobs.
Support Our Schools- Many of the development decisions made by our City Council hurt our schools, leaving them over-crowded and under-funded. The City Council must work more closely with the School Board and stop making decisions that negatively impact our schools.
Adequately Fund Public Safety - Under our current City Council, police and fire services have been drastically reduced to the point where police can not even respond to unverified burglar alarms. We need creative solutions like other cities have successfully used to ensure our public safety services meet the needs of our city.
Develop Quality Neighborhoods - Our current Council has been approving big box retail that drains our historic districts and discourages pedestrian-friendly development. Many smaller cities like Pleasanton, Sunnyvale and Mountain View have worked to make their commercial districts into attractive areas that are a source of pride and tax revenue. Why can't Fremont do the same?
