Planning Commission

As a member of the Planning Commission, I’m required to vote on the projects before the commission based on whether they follow San José’s General Plan.

I believe it’s important for a commissioner to put that mandate in the forefront while also taking public input seriously and making sure everyone who engages with the process feels heard and respected.

My fellow commissioners and I come from all over the city and from all walks of life. I work to bring perspective to the commission as its youngest member, a renter, a resident of West San José, and the only openly LGBTQ+ person to ever serve as a San José Planning Commissioner.
