Welcome to Gilroy Growing Smarter!

Thank You to Our Supporters this Past Election Season!

Our first try at endorsement of Gilroy City Council candidates was modestly successful with the election of two of our four candidates. We are so proud of Carol Marques who received 8141 votes, almost as many as the top vote getter! It is also nice to have three women on the Council for the first time ever. Endorsed candidate Dion Bracco was re-elected, but we are sorry Planning Commission Chair Tom Fischer and newcomer Tim Renggli were not elected. We appreciate all of your support and interest during the election.

Like what GGS is doing? Consider a Seat on a City Commission!

Now is the time to strongly consider applying for one of the City Commissions. We certainly want to support newly elected city council member Carol Marques, and also help the City see development in a more constructive way. Through membership on commissions you can help promote the values of revitalizing downtown and preserving our farmland and open space. Thank you for considering this important way to help both the City and Gilroy Growing Smarter.

Here is the link to the page that tells about the Commission openings and how to apply. http://www.cityofgilroy.org/civicalerts.aspx?aid=387  

Next GGS Member Meeting:
