Gautam ‘Gary’ Barve For Santa Clara City Council District 6
Dear Santa Clarans,
My name is Gautam ‘Gary’ Barve, and I’m running for City Council in Santa Clara District 6.
I’m running on 3 main political platform points:
Santa Clara is located in THE silicon valley in THE greatest country in the world. However, unfortunately our city does not currently reflect this.
Our city is facing a budget deficit of over $ 22 Million predicted for the year 2021. As someone who received his MBA in Entrepreneurial Strategy, I can say this with certainty – being in deficit is no way to run a city. We need to be in surplus. So the question we need to ask ourselves is, how do we get our city from a deficit to a surplus?
There are 2 high-level ways to do this: Increase Revenue and Cut Cost.
I’ve identified 4 ways we can increase our city revenues, and 2 ways we can reduce costs, without increasing taxes, and they form the core of my political platform. Click on the ISSUES tab of the website to learn more!
I strongly believe we should Defend, not defund our police. I will be the first to admit some of the recent incidences have been horrific. However, it is unjust to evaluate entire police departments based on few negative incidences. Most police officers are great people who confront danger to protect residents they do not even know. I believe this is bravery of the highest magnitude. We should defend our police, and not defund!
I believe in providing meaningful, practical solutions to real issues that Santa Clara is facing. Click on the ISSUES tab of the website to learn more!
