Priorities

Campbell is facing important issues as a community. As your Councilmember, some of my priorities would include:


  • Housing - Residents of all ages worry about how we can afford to keep living in Campbell, while preserving the aspects that make small-town life here so special. As someone who’s lived every aspect of the housing crisis, from growing up with my family renting and then owning a home, to being homeless, and now working to help make sure our community has a place for everyone, no one understands the urgency of this issue more than me.


  • Campbell Public Library - Our library, where I’d go as a kid every week while I learned how to read, is badly in need of renovations. Last year, we passed Measure O, a $50 million bond measure to renovate the library and our public safety center. The next City Council will need to set a vision and keep the project on track if we want to keep our library around for the next generation of Campbell residents.


  • Local Businesses - Our local shops and restaurants help make Campbell a special place to live. But our state is likely to face a downturn in the next several years, and I know how tough it is to keep a small business going in a recession. That's why I'm committed to working with local business owners to ensure they have the resources they need to thrive.


As a small city with an annual budget of $79 million, we have to think realistically, creatively, and innovatively to tackle these problems. That’s why I pledge to draw on my nine years in public service and work with our local, regional, and state partners to ensure Campbell has a seat at the table, while balancing our budget at the same time.


Over the course of this campaign, I'll release detailed policy plans on these and other issues. I’m committed to running the most open and inclusive campaign Campbell has ever seen. If you have questions about where I stand on other issues, shoot me an email at sergio@lopezforcampbell.com, or call or text at 408-660-0547. With your permission, I’ll post your questions and all my answers here.
