  • Nine items requested by Councilman Anthony Becker


  1. It would be great if some of these issues have some teeth. I think Kevin’s kinky enough he likes the slap on the wrists.

  2. Seems like Groundhog Day has come to Santa Clara – again! Basically another $heyetee $hooooow. Better get the popcorn and butter ready Folks!

  3. In the midst of the largest budget deficit the City of Santa Clara has ever seen due to Covid 19. After the new city council majority voted to defund our police department and slash our fire department. Councilmember Becker has added several items for public hearing on the 10/19 council meeting agenda. He actually wants to move City Hall to a new downtown location and paint the crosswalks in the city with rainbow colors. It is actually sad that in his desperate attempt to appear relevant, he continues to demonstrate his total incompetence in representing his district or the City as a whole.
