The June 7 Primary is less than two months away and candidates for Mayor and District 3 Council representative are campaigning in force. For those who are invested in the future of downtown San Jose, this is an important election and we encourage business owners to get to know the candidates. We will share opportunities to do so as we learn about them, such as these forums tonight and later this month:
SV@Home District 3 Candidate Forum
April 14 | 6-7:30 p.m. | 350 W. Julian Street #5
SAP Center Mayoral Forum, moderated by SJDA CEO Scott Knies
April 27 | 7 p.m. | 525 W Santa Clara Street
The goal of this forum is to allow the mayoral candidates to share their vision and plan for how they plan to protect SAP Center during the upcoming massive transformation of SAP Center’s neighborhood, including Google’s Downtown West development, the large-scale expansion of Diridon Station for BART and high speed rail, as well as several other significant planned private developments in the area.
