Holly Lofgren urging a YES vote on Measure M Sunnyvale


Open Letter to Sunnyvale residents from Holly Lofgren urging a YES vote on Measure M

I am a 32-year resident of Sunnyvale and supporter of Measure M.  In that time, I have helped out my community in many ways. In 2002 I chaired the committee to build our 50-meter swimming pool at Fremont High School.

I also chaired committees to raise funds for our wonderful local high school district and raised funds for many local charities. I did all these things because I believed in them.

More recently, I got involved in questioning some out-sized development proposals including the one at Butcher’s Corner because I felt the plans were unreasonable. We all have an obligation to assist in our community and if you have specific knowledge, we each have an obligation to share what we know. Here is mine.

I personally witnessed 3 sales/leases or attempted sales/leases of public property that were not conducted in full public view. Continue reading

VOTE for Seat 7: MICHAEL GOLDMAN_City of Sunnyvale Council Election 2016


We were thrilled to learn of Michael Goldman’s Candidacy for the City of Sunnyvale Council 2016 Election and highly recommend that you VOTE for Seat 7: MICHAEL GOLDMAN on NOVEMBER 8, 2016.

Michael’s demonstrated dedication, experience, and leadership skills have consistently proven his intelligent integrity with his responsive voice, responding to the City of Sunnyvale’s ever-changing critical issues  – Affordable housing, worsening traffic and environment, growth and congestion in Sunnyvale, rising sea levels, preserving parks and open space, improving Libraries and quality of living concerns.

Michael Goldman is a 25-year resident of Sunnyvale, former software engineer, and community advocate.

His informative past research, publishing, and insights can be located at Citizens for Sunnyvale Parks & Green Spaces and Cal Pensions in Brief Blogspot. Michael’s intelligent integrity participating as a Councilmember will be the balanced, insightful and reasonable voice that the residents need today.

Like many, Michael has become frustrated with a City Council that ignores the needs of it’s residents and bends to the will of special interests. The issues of concern are finishing the downtown, solutions for worsening traffic and  crowded schools, and respectfully preserving the Sunnyvale parks and open space. Michael campaign states: “We need to expand the library, City Hall, Police and Fire facilities with realistic, cost-effective ways to build on what we have, not grandiose plans made by selling off our parks and green spaces to the highest bidder. Our population increases but infrastructure does not.” The lack of progress in finishing the downtown, worsening traffic, crowded schools, grandiose plans for the Civic Center, the lack of local branch libraries.

VOTE for Seat 7: MICHAEL GOLDMAN City of Sunnyvale Council on NOVEMBER 8, 2016.
