Measure E lets in seniors
and grandchildren to stick

I’ve lived in San Jose my complete existence. I’ve observed the town alternate from the Valley of Middle’s Satisfaction into the capital of Silicon Valley.

What hasn’t modified is the robust sense of neighborhood and the concept when you paintings onerous and play by way of the foundations, you’ll make it right here. But we’re dwelling in a neighborhood now the place it prices such a lot to reside that seniors on a set source of revenue, who even have lived right here for years, can’t come up with the money for to stick.

As a mom, I believe myself fortunate to have a house right here, however is not going to most likely see my grandchildren develop up right here. I, like such a lot of of my buddies and neighbors, have observed my kids go away San Jose.
