He has taken the time to understand the financial ramifications of more delays and he also understands the benefit to Sunnyvale’s economy, and to our community to have a vibrant downtown.

“I have learned a lot from Glenn while we have served together on the Planning Commission, and I consider him as a mentor and friend. While Commissioner Hendricks and I do not always agree on matters before the Planning Commission, what I know is that he will actively listen to all viewpoints and keep an open mind, right up to the point he casts his vote. If Glenn disagrees with you on something, he does so respectfully, never forsaking a future opportunity for collaboration and finding common ground. Further, Glenn has a deep understanding of the community as well as the city’s policies and goals. He is respectful to members of the public, and works extraordinarily well with city staff. On any given land-use application, Glenn is quick to understand the policy implications, and he is particularly adept at making motions that a majority of his fellow commissioners can support.”

When he sees something that needs to be done, he engages himself. Glenn demonstrates a keen ability to work effectively with others and often engages others with a unassuming demeanor, while listening intently in order to find solutions to problems.”

“Most children view their parents as the strongest people they know. As a child, I felt the same way. When I became an adult, I had the opportunity to view my dad in a new light. I have found my dad to be knowledgeable and fair. He is a man of integrity which comes through in everything he does. Sunnyvale was instrumental in providing a strong foundation for the man he has become. My dad is running for City Council to provide those same opportunities to my brother, sister and myself as well as other families. Sunnyvale is a wonderful place to live and he has the desire and dedication to ensure it stays that way.”
