I first met Rod Diridon when I was interviewing for the post of Cultural Commissioner. His love for the City of Santa Clara and commitment to serving the community was evident even in that first encounter. I have found his office at City Hall to be welcoming and responsive. Leading by example, Rod Diridon has fostered a genuinely sincere atmosphere of community service among his staff. He has also worked hard to create transparency and accountability in City government. He has proven himself as City Clerk and I hope you will join me in enthusiastically voting for his re-election!
