本人堅決反對加州16號提案,因為它會對我的很多朋友、鄰居及家人造成歧視。

落後的思想,市政廳中的偏私主義以及新出台的加州法律正在造成Saratoga過度發展。我們急切需要強有力,公正且透明的領導者來保護我們安靜的生活環境。本人約翰(John Fitzpatrick)將會充分利用自己在法律和政府方面的專業知識,通過批准有針對性的增長方案,在當地創造更多就業機會。從而幫助我們恢復對此區域的平衡,防止今後的過度發展。

我們的市政府目前尚未採取任何措施來解決在城市街道,高速公路上經常發生的嚴重交通擁堵問題。在著手解決擁堵問題的同時,我也將會增加消音技術的使用,降低85號高速公路周圍的噪音。並且我們早就應該為那些在繁忙道路上行走、跑步或騎自行車的兒童和成年人提供節能照明以及更好的安全防範措施。

我們應該從最近的悲劇中吸取教訓,更加明智地應對各種突發的緊急情況。目前我們使用的警報系統會受到停電和手機信號的影響,所以擁有一個電池供電的無線電傳輸的備用野火警報系統是至關重要的。一旦對精神健康、事態降級和非暴力危機的解決有了更高的理解與認識,才能保證社區的未來更安全,執法更有效。此外,警長還應在所有巡邏車上安裝車牌閱讀器,以自動發現被盜車輛,並在任何遭遇車輛偷竊或包裹盜竊的社區增加巡邏力度。

考慮到我們城市目前面臨的這些挑戰,Saratoga急切需要一位有專業知識,能夠獨立思考,制定有利於整個社區政策的強有力領導者。
請投票給約翰(John Fitzpatrick)市議員。

 

The above section was translated from the following ad I placed in the Saratoga News on October 9, 2020:

"Backward thinking, favoritism in city hall, and new state laws are threatening Saratoga with excessive development. We need strong, fair, and transparent leadership to protect our quiet way of life. My expertise in law and government will help restore our local control to prevent us from becoming overdeveloped, by allowing targeted growth that creates jobs here instead of high density housing. 
Our city has done little to address the heavier traffic regularly traveling on our streets, especially from the highway and freeway. I will work to increase sound dampening technology to reduce the noise from 85. And we are overdue for energy-efficient lighting and improved safety precautions for the children and adults who walk, run, or bike along our busy roads.

We can learn from recent tragedies and be smarter about our emergency responses. A battery-powered radio-transmitted backup wildfire alert system is vital, because our current warning system is subject to power outages and loss of cell service. Communities are safer and law enforcement is more effective with greater awareness of mental health, de-escalation, and nonviolent crisis resolution. But also the Sheriff should add license plate readers on all patrol vehicles to automatically detect the stolen vehicles used for burglaries, and increase patrols in any neighborhoods suffering from vehicle break-ins or package theft.
Given these challenges facing our city, Saratoga needs a strong leader, attorney, and city hall outsider who will think independently and develop policies that benefit our whole community, not those in power. Vote John Fitzpatrick for City Council."
