Leadership on Mountain View's Most Critical Issues
My name is Alex Nunez and I am truly honored to ask for your vote this November to serve as your next elected representative on our Mountain View City Council.
I am running because I believe that the voices and needs of many Mountain View residents have been largely left behind throughout our long running housing crisis and especially now during our COVID-19 emergency. This has left many in our community feeling hopeless and powerless for their ability to ever recover and establish a better life for themselves or their families.
As your Mountain View City Councilmember I will dedicate myself to seeking out the deepest needs of our community and solving our mutual challenges.
The unprecedented pandemic is critically compounding our community's pre-existing social, health, and economic challenges. We must plan now to help our residents return safely to work and remain securely housed after the emergency ends. (Read Alex's Plan)

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)
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.
