The following is a letter from Hung Wei

Dear Friend,

First I’d like to send you and your family my best regards. I hope you are staying healthy, safe, and active during this challenging and uncertain time.  We will move forward through this global pandemic by working together and doing our part to support our neighbors.

In this time of crisis and beyond, we need City Council members who have the innovative ideas and experience to get things done for the residents of our community. Our city is filled with great promise and great challenges. Fiscal health, public safety, and a lack of housing are all critical issues that must be addressed by our leaders.

With that said, I’m excited to announce that I am running for Cupertino City Council this November and I am asking for your support. Here is my commitment to you:

 Good Governance and Fiscal Responsibility:  Responsibly use city resources to provide excellent services for residents.

  Maintaining our Suburban Neighborhood Integrity:  Provide housing solutions for seniors, teachers, and moderate-income families while strategically navigating state housing laws.

 Environmental Leadership: Make Cupertino sustainable by implementing transportation strategies to reduce traffic and emissions while promoting clean water and air.

I have the values, experience, and commitment to solve our challenges.  Will you join me? I will work with you to make Cupertino a fiscally sound, innovative, and environmentally friendly City!

If you have circles of friends that live in Cupertino, please forward this short message with the attached information – I can use all the help you and your friends can provide, as there is heavy negative campaigning out here. Cupertino does not need negative campaigns so I will not resort to the same negative tactics. I do need your help to get the positive words out.  Thanks again.
Cupertino City Council campaign is heating up and Hung Wei is looking for some extra help. During this COVID Shelter in Place time, she is depending on our circle of supporters to reach out to our circle of family/friends to get the words out. Currently, Hung is looking for the following support
1) Yard Sign Support – could you please ask your family/friends in Cupertino if they will host a yard sign at their place? Hung has two teams of Yard Sign Installation Volunteers that will go out and put up a yard sign. You just need to collect their addresses and email to hungweichien@gmail.com and let them know that a yard sign will be installed soon – no work for them. 
2) Please invite your family/friends to visit www.HungWei.org  Hung Wei has ZOOM Meet and Greets regularly if they are interested in the topics.  If they want to know details on Vallco, the presentation is on the website and she will be happy to arrange a ZOOM Presentation upon request too. 
3) If your family/friends are able, please ask them to make a contribution.  Hung is looking for small contributions ($10, $25 helps) from residents to show broad support from the community. Thanks!
