Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • La asequibilidad de la vivienda es un asunto fundamental para nuestra ciudad en el que seguiré trabajando en la asamblea estatal.
  • Debemos asegurar que nuestro sistema educativo funcione para todos nuestros estudiantes. Como educador, lucharé por una educación antes del jardín de niños universal y gratuita, recursos para jardín de niños hasta el grado 12, acceso al colegio comun
  • Es necesario seguir mejorando nuestra infraestructura de transporte, primero, terminando el BART hasta el centro de la ciudad. También necesitamos hacer una mejor red de transporte creando opciones para tomar el autobús, el tren ligero, la bicicleta

Biografía

Ash Kalra has called San Jose home for over 37 years. In that time, he has developed a passion for serving his neighbors and making sure that our government is solving problems – not creating them.

Ash made history by becoming the first Indian-American to be elected to the San Jose City Council, where he currently represents District 2. In his time as a Councilmember, he has fought against cuts topublic safety including standing up in favor of restoring the SJPD burglary unit and Violent Crimes Enforcement Team, worked to provide incentives for companies to locate and grow in San Jose and has been a champion for more transit options including the BART to Silicon Valley extension. Ash has been one of the foremost advocates of clean energy and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels while preserving our open spaces and protecting our surrounding habitat. Ash has been a voice for public safety, better schools, improved public transportation and a healthier environment.

Since 1999, Ash has been a law professor at Lincoln Law School of San Jose. Previously, he also taught at San Jose State University and at inner city Washington, DC high schools.

Prior to serving on the City Council, Ash was an attorney for the Santa Clara County Public Defender's Office for 11 years. Most of his time was spent in drug treatment court where clients were given theopportunity to complete a rehabilitation program and turn their lives around. In addition, Ash served on numerous non-profit boards, including Somos Mayfair, the Asian Law Alliance, the South Asian Bar Association, Fresh Lifelines for Youth and the Santa Clara County Bar Association. Ash also helped to found the Hayes Neighborhood Association in the neighborhood in which he grew up and still lives today.

Ash Kalra earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a Law Degree from Georgetown University.
