Letter From Michael O’Halloran

I’m glad to see Dominic Caserta’s possible return to City Council. I met Dominic when he campaigned for Council; a standard cold call seeking my vote. His presentation succeeded … more impressive was afterwards! Now Councilmember Caserta, he came back to discuss further, asking questions he might address. He followed-up … with energy and resolve. He has followed neighborhood progress. He joined our “Make A Difference Day” in our Neighborhood Park. Dominic is a good listener, interested in constituents’ opinions. We’ve not always agreed, but he articulates reasons suggesting alternatives.

Santa Clara’s commercial and residential diversity is expanding. He’s kept up with changes. Possibly that’s from the wide exposure he has teaching in the High school and the Community Colleges residents attend, though in our neighborhood’s case, it’s been personal outreach. I appreciate the energy Dominic applies for City issues. Santa Clarans should vote Dominic back to City Council!
