Andy Frazer is the best candidate for Sunnyvale City Council Seat #1


Candidate Andy Frazer is running for Sunnyvale City Council, Seat #1. Andy Frazer is a knowledgeable, sensible, grounded, thoughtful, insightful and intelligent engineer and active community leader, who also has a brilliant esthetic eye as a photographer.

Quite frankly, to me, Andy’s ingenuity and mindset reminds me of Twitter and Square Silicon Valley Founder and billionaire Jack Dorsey who is a distributing leader of ideas, shared purpose, strong vision and value leadership.  Continue reading

Long-time Sunnyvale Resident voices hope for a city that pays heed to voices of entire community


An Open Letter to Sunnyvale Mayor Anthony Spitaleri

Dear Mr. Mayor:

Yesterday’s mail brought a letter from you promoting your selection of candidates in the upcoming election.  In it you relate how you and your family first settled in Sunnyvale some 47 years ago, at a time when you “couldn’t have asked for a better place to raise a family than in a city which cares about its citizens…”  You then describe how during your service to the city you have “emphasized the importance of collaboration and partnership between Community, Business, and Government…”  You add: “Sunnyvale must continue… with a collaborative and solution-oriented mind set.”  (The italics are mine.)

Mr. Mayor, I remember those days of long ago… and even not so long ago.  As a 54-year resident, I agree that Sunnyvale was a very special place.  The sun shone on a city of hope and optimism: a center of new technology where anything might be possible; a friendly town where the streets were named for flowers and fruits and birds and there was an active, ongoing campaign to add even more park space and trees; and especially, I agree, a town which cared for its citizens and actually listened to them.

Time to preserve neighborhoods in Sunnyvale


Reader Letters Courtesy San Jose Mercury News Oct 4, 2013

I was extremely disappointed in the Mercury News recommendations on the Sunnyvale City Council race (Editorial, Sept. 30). The editorial suggested that several candidates for city council are unacceptable choices because of association with Councilman Pat Meyering. Being sympathetic to Meyering’s views should not be cause for disqualification. Many Sunnyvale residents should be sympathetic to Meyering’s views if they want the character of their neighborhoods to remain intact.

After listening to candidates Steve Hoffman and Andy Frazer address the city council and at a recent candidate’s forum, it’s clear that they have well-reasoned positions and they present them via civil debate. It’s time for council members to put Sunnyvale neighborhoods first, and that concept is front and center in the minds of candidates Hoffman and Frazer. By contrast, the Mercury News’ recommended candidates appear to put development first, with preserving the character of Sunnyvale neighborhoods not at the top of their priority list.
