Leadership on Mountain View's Most Critical Issues
My name is Alex Nunez and I am running to serve as your next representative on our Mountain View City Council.
I am running because I believe that now more than ever, we need city leaders who stand up for the well-being of our residents ahead of any other interests.
I have dedicated many years in our community as leader against our long-standing housing crisis — building the relationships, experience, and skills we need to ensure that the needs of all Mountain View residents are represented by our City Council.
As your Mountain View City Councilmember I will dedicate myself to uncovering and addressing the deepest needs of our residents, and ensuring that our COVID-19 recovery leads to a Stronger Mountain View for All.
I am truly honored to ask for your vote by this November 3rd.

The rapid rate of evolution in our modern technologies makes it extremely important for Mountain View residents to decide for themselves which technologies should be used by our government agencies, the reasons for when these technologies should be used, and how any data captured will be used and protected.

Public Safety & Police Reform
The number one priority of every public official is the safety and well-being of every resident and visitor to our city regardless of race, socioeconomic standing, and/or gender identity. Mountain View's police department is well commended and has not been faulted for abusing their use of force. For this reason, Mountain View is primed to adopt innovative police accountability and service reforms which can lay the foundation for reimagined community policing in America. (Read Alex's Plan)
Castro St. Downtown & Small Business Development
In addition to serving our community as a restful gathering place, small business commercial corridor, and transit center, Mountain View's downtown Castro Street reflects Mountain View's identity to the world. We must ensure that unique businesses have the support they need to thrive in our downtown, that we keep the successful pedestrian mall currently in place, and integrate world-class design into our future transit center development.

Transportation & Infrastructure
Our city's infrastructure is already impacted by the high demands and growth of our local economy. While the COVID-19 crisis has currently reduced transportation demand as many working commuters shift to remote work, it is critical for us to make concrete infrastructure plans for the resumption of future growth.
