Lily's Letter to the Community

Dear Friends,

(Updated Nov. 6, 2016: For those who would like pictorial proof of my filing the proper documents, please see my blog.)

Fremont needs CHANGE!

As a longtime resident, I’ve seen development grow rampantly, contributing to standstill traffic and school overcrowding. Fremont needs to listen to citizen concerns and take a responsible approach to development. I am running to lead this change as a city leader who hears and understands your frustrations and concerns.

Before considering ANY new developments, we must ensure that they won’t overload city resources and infrastructure. I will not accept money from developers. 

In the past eight years as your elected public servant, I have actively engaged Fremont citizens. As the first Fremont Unified School District Board Trustee to go on to serve as a Councilmember, I have bridged the gap to ensure that our award-winning schools are a legislative priority. 

On City Council, I have thoroughly evaluated each issue and was not afraid to challenge questionable projects. I have championed the protection of open space and our beautiful hillsides. 

As your full-time Mayor, I will amplify YOUR voice. I will maintain Fremont’s fiscal accountability, strengthen public safety, and bring new jobs and economic growth.

Together, we will make Fremont a hometown we can be proud of.

Learn more about me by reading my blog. See my voting record vs. Mayor Harrison's.

Thank you for your consideration.

Lily Mei
Fremont Vice Mayor
