Lenny at Shoreline Park
"There is a battle underway for the soul of Mountain View. There are some folks who seem happy with gentrification and displacement. I, on the other hand, believe we can preserve our treasured cultural and socioeconomic diversity while maintaining and enhancing our quality of life.

"From 2015 to 2018, Mountain View responded forcefully to the region’s housing crisis, but progress has slowed under the current regime. While the COVID-19 virus is disrupting the entire economy, including housing construction, the need for additional and more affordable housing surely will continue once the emergency subsides.

"Justice is on the ballot this fall. I have been fighting for justice my entire life: racial and ethnic justice, environmental justice, housing justice, health justice, social justice. The continuing struggles for justice are what make America great.

My 2020 campaign will be different than my 2018 campaign. I have to be prepared to campaign in a political landscape shaped by COVID-19. Even if current restrictions are relaxed, I expect that most voters will be reluctant to answer when someone knocks on their doors.

Therefore, I am planning for the first time to raise and spend the full amount of Mountain View’s spending limit. Among other things, this will enable me to do a city-wide mailing.

If you’re in a position to help—and I know a lot of people are not, these days—please consider making a donation to my campaign.

I will not be accepting money from the following:

  1. Developers and owners of large development properties in Mountain View
  2. Top executives of major Mountain View employers
  3. Vendors or contractors that have substantial business with the City of Mountain View.
  4. Fossil-fuel executives
  5. Russian or Ukrainian oligarchs 😄
