As Councilmember, Raul built the most affordable housing in all of San José. As Mayor, he will continue this work to build all types of housing so our working families and the next generation can afford to stay here.
Raul will take responsibility for turning the tide on homelessness. He will demand accountability with compassion to deliver results. Waiting for those in crisis to seek drug and mental health treatment has failed. It’s time to get people off the street and into the treatment they need and deserve.
We can and must have a city where people feel safe, with an adequately staffed police force that reflects our city’s diversity, builds trust with the community, and re-imagines how we collectively ensure public safety in every neighborhood. Let’s make San José the safest big city in America once again.
