Retain luxury dwelling off
significant wildlife corridor
The time is now for San Jose to forever secure the 17-acres along the Santa Teresa Ridge now focused for a 5,900 sq.-foot luxury improvement (the “Gschwend Project“).
The days when the City could approve enhancement on land labeled by the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Program as a “critical” wildlife corridor in Coyote Valley really should now be at the rear of us.
This land forms a important route for mountain lions, badgers, deer and other species to properly cross Santa Teresa Boulevard, according to Pathways for Wildlife organic consultants. The Santa Clara Valley Audubon Culture, which also acquired important environmental information about the area, states the science obviously reveals a household and its involved pursuits, sound, lighting and driveway on that wildlife linkage place will have a sizeable unfavorable affect on wildlife motion. The house in issue is also specified as significant habitat for the threatened Bay checkerspot butterfly.
Mehlinger is preserving
Re. “Elect Srinivasan, Mehlinger to Sunnyvale council,” Web page A6, Sept. 14:
Justin Wang isn’t the only Sunnyvale applicant to acknowledge a substantial donation from the wealthy Los Altos developer of Butcher’s Corner. Seated Council member Otto Din acknowledged $7,000 in September 2020 for his marketing campaign from the identical developer.
Richard Mehlinger hasn’t recognized donations from builders right in his bid for City Council but has acknowledged donations from Din. Mehlinger also donated to Din in Oct 2020. The point that Din accepted $7,000 in donations from a developer was publicly readily available when Mehlinger donated to, and acknowledged donations from, Din. Din has also endorsed Wang and Mehlinger.
Din, Mehlinger and Wang are all progressives who want extra housing, and it’s quite about that Din and Wang recognized large donations from a wealthy developer. Mehlinger’s independence on housing may possibly be compromised by the business he keeps.
Time for Eshoo to move
torch to Kumar
I checked into Rishi Kumar for Congress, mechanical engineer, tech executive, and Saratoga Metropolis Council member. Why is Kumar undertaking so properly from Anna Eshoo, at 79 a long time previous, a 30-year incumbent? He’s not a vocation politician but has pragmatic strategies to address daily issues. He fights for the persons. Eshoo’s June principal vote was 48%, down from 72%
Rishi will utilize his tech savvy to greater serve the constituents in his district, which contains Silicon Valley. Eshoo was first elected to Congress in 1992, pre-web. She receives marketing campaign cash from Pharma and protection lobbyists. Eshoo faces a formidable opponent. Rishi rejects unique curiosity money and impact.
The decision is between a skilled politician or a dynamic prospect who is certainly a agent of the men and women. It is time to go the torch. Vote Rishi Kumar for Congress.
Moss Beach front
can’t be acquired
Have you read the terms “I approve this message” by a politician? That signifies the prospect realized about the ad, but you will not listen to that from Santa Clara Town Council member Raj Chahal, simply because the 49ers shaped an Unbiased Expenditure PAC termed Neighbors for Santa Clara, donated about $180,000 to his marketing campaign and created Television set and on the web adverts supporting him making use of earlier footage of him from social media.
He has hardly ever spoken to anyone from this PAC and under no circumstances authorized the advertisements. That is what corporate income is doing in political campaigns as they invest in elections in our nation. Chahal by no means recognized unique fascination cash and returned these donations throughout the last and existing elections. Chahal has the inhabitants of District 2 in Santa Clara in his mind with each individual of his votes at Town Council conferences and has labored tough to support our city go toward fiscal accountability.
Check out his internet site for the true Raj Chahal.
Queen Elizabeth lent
dignity to the monarchy
Millions of people today close to the earth have witnessed the solemn funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday. President Biden has explained her death as “a decline that leaves a huge hole.”
Her demise on the other hand has sparked a renewed discussion on the desirability of continuing with the monarchy in the context of the modified globe get. This may possibly maintain good to some extent but the volatility of the parliamentary system of democracy with functions at the helm constantly carries the danger of corrupt procedures in governance. Monarchy on the other hand stands largely insulated in opposition to this kind of hazards and has a sobering influence on general public life.
As a ceremonial head of state and with her charming private appeal and aura, Queen Elizabeth has bestowed a one of a kind dignity to the institution of monarchy.
