Why I'm Running
I’m running for San Jose Mayor because we need genuine leadership in City Hall. It's time to have a representative who will solve the challenges impacting our families and residents.
The choices we make now will determine our collective future. It is up to us to work together to ensure the vitality and strength of this great city is felt by the entire community.
As a mother and former Vice Mayor, I have the values and experience to take on the toughest challenges facing San Jose families. As County Supervisor, I championed affordable housing by authoring Measure A – 4,400 new affordable homes are now built or in the pipeline. Working with non-profits, we relocated over 14,000 homeless people off the streets and into safe housing. We can end family homelessness by 2025.
When COVID-19 hit, we acted quickly to save lives and made Santa Clara County one of the most vaccinated in America. I helped save two hospitals, 451 hospital beds and two emergency rooms.
I pushed the Children’s Health Initiative, so every San Jose child has access to health insurance. I established the Megan’s Law Taskforce to keep sexual predators from secretly moving into our neighborhoods and made Santa Clara County the national model for arresting rapists by rapidly processing their DNA.
I’m running for Mayor to improve our quality of life. Working with police officers and communities, we can make San Jose the safest big city in America. I’ll tackle the affordable housing crisis, homelessness, rising crime, climate change and inequality with passion and experience. I’d be honored to have your vote. www.CindyChavezforMayor.com
