Budget Update

With the signing of AB 179, I'm proud to announce having secured an additional $13.8 million in state funding for local projects in Newark and San Jose, bringing the total to $31.6 million this year for all five cities. This important funding will go to supporting building Piedmont Middle School's new gym, broadband access, developing a quiet zone, homeless prevention, rebuilding a teen center, building an all-inclusive playground, supporting biking infrastructure, and developing a landmark bicycle and pedestrian gateway.
