San Jose, CA – Last night, Matt Mahan was joined by San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo and more than 200 neighbors who support his independent leadership to improve every neighborhood in District 10. The strong attendance from a diverse group of community leaders at last night’s event highlights the strong grassroots support for Mahan’s campaign for city council.
Mahan was introduced by neighborhood leaders Roxanne and Greg Koopman. Also in attendance were Councilmember Johnny Khamis, former Councilmember Nancy Pyle, and Sierra Club Guadalupe Regional Chair Dave Poeschel. Mahan is a member of the Almaden Valley Communication Association, the D10 Leadership Coalition, the City’s Clean Energy Community Advisory Commission, and helped found the Friends of Guadalupe Oak Grove Park organization. Matt is also co-founder and former CEO of Brigade, a nonpartisan technology platform that empowers voters to become informed, discuss, and advocate on civic issues that matter most to them.
“I know we can make San Jose an even stronger community — and that starts with great neighborhoods. By empowering our neighborhoods so City Hall hears from us — not the special interests with the loudest voices — we can build a safer, more affordable, and livable community,” said Mahan.
