Mayor Esteves Challenged on November Ballot

Two residents hope to occupy the mayor's office--the incumbent and his challenger, a local leader in the Occupy movement.

Two names will appear on the November ballot for Milpitas mayor--encumbent Jose Esteves and challenger Rob Means. Both officially qualified for the ballot Monday.

Means is a businessman who  because of his battle with the city over the local sign ordinance. In fact, backed by the ACLU, he's suing the city that he wants to run.

Esteves has been mayor since 2002. He has guided the city through tough economic times, including the privatization this year of some city services.

This is an easy choice. Jose Esteves for Mayor, Rajeeve Madnawot and Gary Barbadillo for City Council. The return the control to the people slate. Many are tired of our government being ordered around by the union hall. When elected City Hall start making the decisions again.
