CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENTS AND RECEPTION
With great pride GGS endorses these 4 candidates for Gilroy City Council
Please vote for them by the November 6 election day:
As a member of Gilroy Growing Smarter’s Executive Committee Carol worked tirelessly to help pass Measure H in 2016. She will defend it by making sure any challenger will be required to gather signatures to put their project on the ballot as GGS did. As the Vice-Chair of GGS, she has already invested a lot of time and energy investigating the issues and developing a plan for improving downtown. Carol is the only member of GGS running in this election and, as such, we encourage you to get involved in helping her win. Please contact her at the following to donate or volunteer:
Tom is the current Planning Commission Chair who has voted against the 721 acre land grab and the bad agri-tourism development in Hecker Pass. He was neutral on Measure H in the last election but now is in full support of the Urban Growth Boundary. He said he is already seeing it’s benefits. He would also protect it from challenges by making sure the challenging group would have to gather signatures to put it on the ballot. If you would like to donate or volunteer to help Tom contact him at the following:
Dion is a two-term, incumbent council member who also voted against the 721 acre land grab and the bad agri-tourism development in Hecker Pass. Dion did not take a position on Measure H in 2016 as he was not running for election. He does think that in the long run it will be good for the city, now supports the measure and will defend it from challenges. Dion is a straight shooter. To help with his campaign contact him at:
Tim is a motivated political newcomer who favors small business development, downtown improvement and slow residential growth. He put up a Yes on H lawn sign in 2016 and will work to defend it from challenges now. If you would like to help with Tim’s campaign or donate, contact him at the following:
