ENDORSEMENTS

These San Jose community members are supporting Raul for Mayor!

Chris Patterson Simmons
Owner of Neu2U Thrift Boutique
“Raul listens to the voices of our small businesses and takes action to ensure we can thrive and serve our community.”
Dan Gordon
Owner, Gordon Biersch Brewery
“Raul’s record of achieving results by bringing all sides together is the leadership we need to get our city back on track.”
Lennies Gutierrez
Latino Leadership Alliance
“Raul is committed to an economic pathway of recovery for all of San Jose’s communities, and is working to ensure housing equity, economic justice and bridging the digital divide.”
Nicole Le
Owner, Tripshot
“Raul understands that ensuring public safety for every San Jose family, and our city’s businesses and employees is essential to creating a thriving city.”
Serena Alvarez, Esq.
Willow Glen Resident & Civil Rights Advocate
"I trust Raul. He embraces humility in leadership and is seasoned in drawing people together with diplomacy. San Jose Mayoral strength is rightly rooted in effective teamwork for the greater good of all city residents, not strong-arming for or deferring to powerful, well-funded interests. Raul Peralez is a remarkable team player, an outstanding team leader and absolutely the right choice to be San Jose’s next Mayor - for all."
Silicon Valley Young Democrats
“The Silicon Valley Young Democrats are proud to early endorse Raul Peralez for Mayor of San Jose. Raul has worked tirelessly throughout his time on City Council to make San Jose a place of opportunity for all, to build bridges between the community and the city, and to reach across the political divides that have riven our local government in recent years. It is this record of consensus-driven leadership, and his vision for a San Jose that is strong, prosperous, and above all inclusive, that makes Raul Peralez – a former Young Dem himself – our endorsed candidate for Mayor of San Jose.”
Sylvia Arenas
San Jose City Council Member
“As Mayor, Raul will continue his fight to ensure the needs of San José’s working families are addressed in our city’s policies and our city’s budget.”
Tamiko Rast
Owner, Rasteroids Design
"Raul was instrumental in advancing Japantown's initiatives, including relocation of the Japantown Farmer's Market, improving our community's safety, and providing business support during COVID. Without his leadership, our community would not have made the strides that it has in such a short amount of time."
Thang Le
Owner of Lee’s Sandwiches
“Raul’s leadership is essential to rebuilding our small businesses as we emerge from this pandemic, and we look forward to working with him as our next mayor to create a thriving and exciting future for our city.”
