I was first elected to Sunnyvale Council in August of 2016 and then re-elected in November of 2016. In January of 2019, I was selected as Sunnyvale’s Mayor by my fellow Councilmembers. And in November of 2020, I became Sunnyvale first directly-elected Mayor by our residents. I appreciate the privilege of serving as mayor for our fine city.
I have been the voice of the people. Since 2016, I have been accessible with my weekly office hours, where I answer resident questions, collaborate to resolve concerns, assist them to get more involved and encourage new efforts and ideas. THANK YOU for your continued support and working to create and refine our vision for a better Sunnyvale.
I originally moved to Sunnyvale in 1989 after college, and I immediately knew where I would settle down. For more than two decades my wife, Sheri, and I have been blessed to live in Downtown Sunnyvale. Prior to my election to Council, I spent 9 years on the Planning Commission (2004-2010, and 2013-2016)–striving to improve projects and make a better city for everyone.
