People should know that Mr. Means was arrested for his marijuana operations. Mr. Means wants to raise taxes so that he can increase the size of the government. If you are planning to vote for him, please ask him how he will tackle the deficit. His childish answer would be enough to convince any sane person to bid him goodbye.

I have seen Mr. Means speak several times and he always brings up his bicycle business. He tries to promote it. To be mayor and promoting your business would be a conflict of interest.

Rob Means has always been vocal about transparency in city government, something Milpitas sorely needs. While Jose Esteves has done many fine things for MIlpitas, he has also presided over a misuse of redevelopment monies for city salaries as well as misuse of state lands. We need to clean house and elect new city officers. A candidate with an open vibrant take on local issues, like Rob Means, would be welcome.
