Welcome to my new website for my run for District 1 Supervisor! During my two terms on the Los Gatos Town Council, I worked to address issues such as climate change, transit and congestion management, sustainable economy and equitable housing solutions.
I was privileged to serve on the Valley Transit Authority, Community Choice Clean Energy, the Regional Air Quality District and LAFCO, where I have been passionate about fighting urban sprawl.
Helping Santa Clara County recover from the COVID crisis will be job one, including support for families and our struggling local business community. Another ever present danger is the threat of wildfire, which increases every year. These issues face all of us in Santa Clara County and District 1 in particular, with its large unincorporated areas, forests and hills.
In addition, I am committed to breaking the downward spiral of the interconnectedness of homelessness, mental health and the criminal justice system.
As an engineer with 25 years of experience in solar and renewable energy, I am prepared to take on the challenge of climate change and promote fossil fuel alternatives for vehicles, buildings, and the grid, as well as completing our mass transit plan that was originally envisioned in the 70s.
I invite you to join me in this campaign for District 1 Supervisor. Our District is large and diverse, including parts of the city of San Jose, Morgan Hill, Monte Sereno, Gilroy, Los Gatos and unincorporated Santa Clara County.
I look forward to meeting you and hearing your concerns, whether in person or electronically. I will be an accessible campaigner and an equally accessible Supervisor. Maintaining an open and transparent government has always been at the top of my list for a good legislator.
Thank you for your support,
Rob Rennie, Vice Mayor of Los Gatos and candidate for Santa Clara County Supervisor, District One
