Why would Corporations and Developers, who live outside of outside of the City of Sunnyvale, fund certain Candidates for the City Council Election 2018? Why so much Campaign Funding? Do large contributions make for a better Candidate?
This does not mean that the highest funded candidates are the best choices . . . the generous campaign donors ultimately desire a City Council and Members who will vote favorably to approve their developments and projects. This is not always in the interest in the quality of living for Sunnyvale Residents.

Please SIGN the PETITION here: SUNNYVALE BUTCHER’S CORNER PETITION
The proposed Butcher’s Corner Project includes 99 apartments (6 and 7 story) as well as 39 3-story townhomes, significant and unavoidable traffic impacts at Kingfisher and Fremont, and includes deviations for EL Camino bldg front set-back, Fremont Ave front set-back, and reduced distance between buildings.
The Sunnyvale Planning Commission recommends a new traffic study, the Heritage Preservation Commission recommends that 6 trees be named Heritage Resources, the Stocklmeir school is grossly overcrowded and many, many people object to this project for a host of other reasons.
Topics to speak on – the inadequacy of EIR, or the many issues relating to the project as a whole. There will be only one hearing and one opportunity to speak. Speakers have 3 minutes. Visual aids are allowed, such as PowerPoint or PDF files. We are expecting the developer to bring lobbyists and high density development enthusiasts, so it is very important that the residents stand up for their community and reasonable development.
