For November 4, 2014
Dear Fellow Santa Clarans:
I am honored to have received the sole endorsement from the San Jose Mercury News today, Sunday,October 12,2014:"Nadeem has the right combination of experience and priorities for this time".
Humbled by the strong support received in today's Editorial, Santa Clara Weekly, Oct. 15, 2014:
My wife, Sarah, and I are proud parents of our four lovely children. We have lived in Santa Clara for the past 22 years. We absolutely love this City. Santa Clara is where we work; where our children go to school, play in the parks, and go to libraries. I want to give back to this City I happily call my home.
As an 'independent voice', my priorities/goals as your Councilmember are to ensure: excellent City Services, outstanding public safety, balanced budgets, low cost utilities, restoring senior, youth & library services, sustainable small businesses, and new projects such as Centenial Gateway & Related Santa Clara's City Place that supports parks & recreation development for a better quality of life.http://www.mercurynews.com/opinion/ci_26555741/sept-18-readers-letters-campos-actions-and-years
As your representative, I will always put ' Santa Clara First' and I am proud of Citywide support among Santa Clarans:
I stand for:
- Public Safety / Safe Streets / Reduce Traffic Problems
- Soccer Park/Park Refurbishment & Investment in new parks/Ulistac
- Core Services: Senior, Youth & Library
- Economic & Fiscal Responsibility
- Montana/Lowe & Related Santa Clara's 'City Place' Projects
Working together with the Mayor and the Council members, I will revisit options to raise city employees salaries! If we have a surplus of funds to beautify the City and can spend money on flowers on El Camino Real & other areas---then we can revisit employees' salaries issue as they have NOT seen any raise in over 5 years!
As per my campaign disclosure statements of June 30th & Sept 30 on the city website, the monetary contributions I received are mostly from everyday Santa Clarans/local residents. I do not owe any favors to any special interest.
I am endorsed by Teresa O'Neil, City Council Member, Santa Clara; Senator Jim Beall; Assemblymember Paul Fong; County Board of Supervisors President; David Cortese & many local community and business leaders & residents. I am also honored to have been endorsed by Sierra Club/LCV, etc.
As part of civic engagement, for November 2014 elections, if you've not registered yet, please register to vote (you can do online now) at: https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US

Thank you, DrNadeem
