As the Mayor of Cupertino, I am proud of my work. I worked with residents to take on the largest corporate polluter in our community – Lehigh Cement Plant. Lehigh was recently fined several million dollars by the EPA. Because of my work, Lehigh reduced its mercury pollution by 90% and was forced to install a monitoring smoke stack.
I diligently negotiated with Apple for the approval of the Apple Campus 2 Project, which yielded an extra $40 million, a 30% increase in sales taxes, and more jobs here.
Working with the City Council, I helped to pass the Community Choice Energy Program, which will substantially curb harmful emissions.
I am working with VTA and Apple to solve traffic congestion.
Today I am the subject of a recall. A small group is unhappy with a decision that the majority of the City Council made to inform you that their proposed initiative could increase the maximum residential building height to 45 feet. As Mayor, I am obliged to let you know the truth. I urge you to gather the facts – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit: www.friendsofbarrychang.com to learn more. Thank you.
Barry Chang, Mayor
