Why Vote Rob Means for Milpitas City Council in 2014?

The 2014 election is a tipping point when your vote can make the difference between an accelerating economic and environmental slide or a reversal of those policies that make us less safe, less prosperous, and less connected as a community. This year's election could even break through the obstructionism in Congress and the State legislature. That could clear the way for long-delayed, much needed change and new opportunities that could benefit Milpitas and its residents. Rob Means, after a 20-year computer programming career and 15 years in the light electric vehicle business, is prepared to engage new opportunities as they arise.

The City Council team is responsible for choosing the strategies and policies that will guide us through the next challenging years. Wise choices by Council that support a broad prosperity and mutual responsibility will help us all to do better for ourselves, our families and our community.

If you want an effective City Council team balanced with a progressive voice that works together for a better future, vote Rob Means for City Coucnil.
