Vicki Veenker, a local mediator and attorney who heads the Sibling Cities USA program, also announced she is planning to run for an open seat on the council. Veenker was previously a candidate for California State Assembly in 2016 but lost to Marc Berman for the District 24 seat. She has said her priorities are to tackle climate change at the local revel and deal with the city’s housing needs.

Veenker has already been endorsed by key local elected officials like congresswoman Anna Eshoo, Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian and state Senator Josh Becker.
