Last night, we tuned in to see if there was any report on the CVRA lawsuit. But there wasn’t any reportable action.
The City Council has to decide if they’ll appeal the case that they lost. On behalf of the Santa Clara residents, we hope they do as we’ve written about recently.
This will be an early test for the new City Council especially the newly elected members.
Councilmembers Anthony Becker, Suds Jain and Kevin Park were elected when Jed York spent $3 million to win their 3 council seats.
None of them have ever won an election on their own before. In fact, together they’ve lost multiple times before York spent big bucks on their behalf.
York also spent over $600,000 to defeat Measure C in 2020. That was seen as an effort to help the CVRA lawsuit.
It would be natural for York to want a return on his investment. So here’s what we’re watching for.
- Will Becker, Jain and Park payback York and others who supported them with their decision on the CVRA lawsuit?
- Then will Becker, Jain and Park payback York on stadium issues like the curfew and lawsuits?
These are major issues all Mission City residents should watch for as we watch this year’s City Council meetings.
