Fong brings per­spec­tive, skills Sun­ny­vale needs

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION -

— Bob and Mar­garet Law­son, Sun­ny­vale

Ma­son Fong, who is run­ning for Sun­ny­vale City Coun­cil Dis­trict 3, is our choice.

Ma­son is a grad­u­ate in ur­ban plan­ning; he stud­ied land use, trans­porta­tion and hous­ing, is­sues that are rel­e­vant to Sun­ny­vale. He now works in the of­fice of San Jose City Coun­cil­man Chap­pie Jones, so he un­der­stands how city pol­icy is de­vel­oped. He is chair of the Sun­ny­vale Board of Li­brary Trus­tees, an im­por­tant po­si­tion as Sun­ny­vale will soon build a new li­brary.

Ma­son brings a dif­fer­ent point of view Sun­ny­vale needs; if elected, he’d be the youngest City Coun­cil mem­ber, and only the third AsianAmer­i­can City Coun­cil mem­ber in a ma­jor­ity/mi­nor­ity city

His work in the of­fices of Con­gress­men Mike Honda and Ro Khanna gave him a re­gional per­spec­tive on ma­jor is­sues like traf­fic, af­ford­able hous­ing and the en­vi­ron­ment.

The Mer­cury News gave him a glow­ing en­dorse­ment: “the po­ten­tial to be a po­lit­i­cal stand­out.”

We agree. Vote for Ma­son Fong for Sun­ny­vale City Coun­cil, Dis­trict 3.
