to Hung Wei and Kitty Moore.
current trends hold, and Hung Wei and Kitty Moore are elected,
Cupertino voters have retained a 4-1 progressive, resident-centered,

am disappointed about losing, I am not unhappy or depressed. This
was never about me. It was always about doing what was best for

special-interest money, even though it was offered to me in obscene

be a great mayor (again).

Commissions. Yes, the usual progression is from a Commission to City
Council, and not the other way around, but I have no delusions of
not decided as to whether or not I will run again in 2022, but I am
saving my yard signs! Please donít throw them away, I want them
