2004 Letter of Appreciation to John for his 1996-2004 City Council Service

Seat 3

See Notes BELOW re: Nasty Mayor Lisa Gillmor Political Election Impacts -And now more negative actions are finally surfacing about other negative Gillmor election manipulations....

FPPC # 1387299

Here are 3 of 6 mailers of Mayor Lisa Gillmor's direct NEGATIVE Lies & innuendoes made during the 2016 City Council Election. NONE OF US she was against had ANY DIRECT or INDIRECT connections with the 49ers..... But she directly used 5 "developer friends" (John Vidovich - DeAnza Properties $20,000; Citation Homes $10,000;  Summerhill Homes $10,000; California/ Tri-County Apartment Association $10,000; & Prometheus $15,000"Pay to Play" & Build in SC?????) to contribute $65,000 to pay for these racist & negative mailers (White v. Black; "Good" v. "Evil"; Color Pictures v. Black & White Pictures) to be printed & mailed to voters via the SC Police Officers Association PAC. (Who designed these? It wasn't the SC POA!) These 5 large Developers have many projects and/or properties in Santa Clara!  So much for Mayor Gillmor's hollow "SC's Ethical & Good Government" mantra.

Congratulations to Debi Davis for being re-elected.  On Wednesday Nov. 30th with "100%" of the votes counted (three weeks after election ) the following is the FINAL vote total in Seat #3:

On Wed. Nov. 30th as a part of an 18 person Santa Clara team we observed the formal Recount at the County Registrar's Office that validated Chief Seller's re-election despite Mayor Gillmor's unethical attempts to elect who she favored.  More importantly we are are still waiting to hear her proof of "There is corruption in City Hall" that she arrogantly announced in July 2016!!  ?????
