Council District 7 Newsletter
March 2, 2018 - In This Issue:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It's been a year since the devastating Coyote Creek Flood in the RockSprings neighborhood in our district. Since then, I have been committed to ensuring that I keep in constant communication with this community. This past Monday, I held a community rising/emergency preparedness meeting to provide residents with important information on how to prepare for future disasters. I'm truly grateful for all the local agencies who joined me in getting our community better prepared for future storms and other emergencies. Since the flood last year, the city has made many improvements that have resulted in better communications. I will continue to push for more improvements from the city and other local government agencies. I want to give a special thank you to the San Jose Fire Department Local 230 for barbequing as well as the RockSprings residents for coming to share their stories with all of us.

Clean Up with Tam at College Connection Academy scheduled for Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 8am has been cancelled due to heavy rain predicted for this weekend. The clean up has been rescheduled to Saturday, March 17, 2018. We will meet at 8am at College Connection Academy, 1855 Lucretia Avenue to clean up the Lucretia neighborhood. We will be providing all the cleaning supplies, snacks, refreshments and community service hours. No one is too old or too young to help clean up. Hope to see you there!

Recently, I have received many phone calls and emails regarding the increase number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sweeps that have broken up families and promoted much fear in our community. To ensure that everyone understands their rights, I am hosting a District 7 Immigration Forum on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 6pm-8pm at Saint Maria Goretti Church, 2980 Senter Road. Please join me to hear important information regarding immigration, learn about your rights and utilize legal resources. We will have representatives from the Office of Immigrant Affairs, San Jose Police Department, Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, the Mexican Consulate, and other local agencies to address your questions.  We look forward to seeing you there.

I f you have any questions, concerns or suggestions on how we can improve our community, feel free to contact me at  (408) 535-4907  or email me at

This week, schools across District 7 celebrated Dr. Seuss' Birthday with Read Across America Day.   I had the wonderful pleasure of being the Read Across America guest reader for both Santee and Meadows Elementary Schools. I want to thank Erin Cardona, Tim Barrington and Dave Bech for the invitation. I  really enjoy this event because it gives many adults the opportunity to encourage early  literacy in classroom.
Monday night, I hosted a Community Rising BBQ for the RockSpring residents that were impacted by the flood last year. I want to thank our residents for their attendance and for sharing their personal stories with all of us. I also want to thank the SJFD Local 230 for helping us grill hamburgers and hotdogs. I am grateful to   many  city departments, Catholic Charities, Law Foundation, Red Cross, and the Santa Clara Valley Water District who  came and provided information on how to avoid, prevent, and deal with future disasters. 
This past Saturday, I co-hosted the Tet celebration with the Tully Library. It was so wonderful to see so many of our district's youth come out to learn about rich Vietnamese culture and tradition. Thank you so much to Chieu Nguyen and her team at the Tully Library for working so hard to help preserve the culture in our city.
Last Saturday, I hosted the Tet Festival event at the VACC. The event was well received with over 1500 attendees  enjoying cultural festivities with performances, many games, resources booths, and red envelopes. I want to thank our partners for making this a great and successful event that helps educate residents in San Jose about Vietnamese traditional and culture. I also want to thank all of our volunteers for their help and support. Without their help, we couldn't have had this successful of an event.
This past Saturday, I had the great honor of co-hosting the District 7 Black History Month Luncheon Celebration at Seven Trees Community Center. I want to thank the Iola Williams Senior Advisory Board for co-hosting this event with my office and everyone that joined us in this great celebration of African-American culture and heritage.  I also had the pleasure of presenting a commendation to this group for organizing this important event annually these past four years since I have been in office, bringing awareness and education to our residents about the contributions and achievements of African-American people in our country. 
Following is a statement for San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo regarding recent rumors of ICE operations planned for the Bay Area:
" The Administration's indiscriminate approach to immigration enforcement only serves to intensify fear in our community.  These fears are exacerbated by recent rumors that additional ICE operations may be imminent.
Beyond learning of a few isolated arrests, we have not yet been able to confirm the veracity of rumors about any widespread ICE operations in the Bay Area.  Regardless of the truth of these rumors, my message to our immigrant residents remains the same: we have your back. The San Jose Police Department does NOT participate in ICE operations. The SJPD will remain focused on protecting our residents and responding to predatory crime in our community.
To our immigrant San Joseans:
Please continue to call 911 when you witness a crime or need emergency medical assistance. Our police officers and first responders are here to serve our community, and will not disclose immigration status to ICE, nor participate in immigration enforcement operations. 
Our residents should remain vigilant, but after consulting with several experts on the subject, I believe that families should continue the essential tasks of their daily lives: allowing children to go to school, keeping medical appointments, and the like.  Rumors may continue to arise in the weeks and months ahead, but until they are verified, we must not allow mere rumors to undermine the life-sustaining activities of thousands of our immigrant families.
Nonetheless, ongoing vigilance is imperative.  Families should prepare a communications plan that includes having a power of attorney ready, and carrying a list of important emergency contact phone numbers.   We have also established a 24/7 hotline to share information about ICE activity and to help our network of community partners rapidly respond to provide support and representation to those affected by such enforcement actions. Please call 408-290-1144 if you observe ICE activity at your work or in your neighborhood.
Legal resources for families can be sought through the Immigrant Legal Resource Center website and by calling the SIREN hotline at 408-453-3017  (Spanish/English), and 408-453-3013 (Vietnamese/ English).  I also encourage everyone to  learn about their rights and the resources available in our community website or contacting our City's Office of Immigrant Affairs by phone at 408-535-8146
In addition, local business owners should know that, under California law, employers must request any ICE officials to show a warrant or other court order prior to allowing entry entering any non-public areas of the workplace. For more information on your obligations as an employer, click here

The City of San José, Department of Transportation is responsible for managing day-to-day traffic operations and providing convenient access to Downtown destinations for employees, residents, businesses and visitors. This notification is to inform you about upcoming Events having impact on city streets, and to notify you of potential traffic delays. For any questions pertaining to the above Events, please contact Anh Nguyen at (408) 975-3722.

After a dismally dry February, March has come in like a lion. Rain and snow has fallen in the mountains surrounding Santa Clara Valley, and the forecast shows several more storms on their way. While unanticipated stream or storm drain blockages could always cause localized flooding during a rainstorm, we do not currently anticipate any creek flooding issues.
Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVW) crews have worked all year to prepare our creeks for winter rains. We are dedicated to keeping residents and businesses safe through our flood protection programs.
In preparation for this series of storms, all five of our sandbag sites have been fully stocked. In addition, cities around the county operate an additional 18 sandbag sites.
Our maintenance staff stands ready with heavy equipment to respond to reports of downed trees or large debris flows in locations where we have property rights. We are monitoring streams for blockages at key bridges and culverts. We need the public's help as our eyes and ears to alert us to obstructions in the creeks and to prevent flooding. To report issues in creeks, residents can call 408-630-2378 or submit a service request to Access Valley Water.
As of Thursday morning, our ten reservoirs have a combined storage of just 26 percent of their full capacity. This leaves a significant amount of storage space to capture the expected storm runoff. Therefore, we do not anticipate any possibility of our large reservoirs reaching capacity this week or next. The exception is the relatively small Vasona Reservoir in Los Gatos, which regularly reaches capacity during the rainy season.
Visit SCVW website for flood safety tips, current reservoir levels and stream flows, and maps to free sandbag sites.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please email or call Rachael Gibson, Deputy Administrative Officer at or 408
San José, CA - Happy Hollow Park & Zoo (HHPZ) brings a new happily ever after to San José. The Puppet Castle Theater at HHPZ debuts a bilingual show of adventure in English and Spanish. "Maya la Valiente," written by HHPZ staff member Stephen Evans, premiered on February 19 at the HHPZ Puppet Castle Theater.

In this puppet show, Maya, a shy 8-year-old girl with a big imagination, is playing in her abuela's (grandmother's) backyard with her snail friend, Speedy. When her older cousin Bianca taunts Maya, Speedy hides in her abuela's old shed. Bianca dares Maya to rescue Speedy by disobeying her abuela and going into the shed. Maya must show courage to save her friend. 

"The Puppet Castle Theater at Happy Hollow is one of the oldest puppet theaters in California," said Charlotte Orr, the park's new Conservation and Communications Manager. "Our puppet shows provide magical experiences for our many guests year-round, and it stays in their memories."

As we observe the one year anniversary of the Coyote Creek flood in San José, our thoughts are with those impacted by last year's relentless series of storms. Last winter, back-to-back atmospheric rivers unleashed a historic downpour on Santa Clara County in just a two-month period, saturating our watersheds, swelling our creeks and filling our reservoirs. By Feb. 21, 2017, downtown San José had received 14 inches of rain, or 114 percent of normal. One year later it could not be more opposite, with less than 5 inches of rain, or 51 percent of normal, as of Feb. 12.

It is precisely because of nature's unpredictability that the Santa Clara Valley Water District believes investing in flood protection now is our community's insurance policy for the future. In the last 12 months, the water district has taken great strides to reduce the risk of flooding in vulnerable communities along Coyote Creek.

San José offers two ways to collect yard trimmings:
  • Place your yard trimmings loose in the street (no extra charge).
  • Place in your optional yard trimmings cart for collection.
Yard trimmings carts are available for an  additional monthly fee. Call GreenWaste Recovery at ( 408) 283-4800 to order a yard trimmings cart and start your yard trimmings subscription.

Follow these simple guidelines when setting out your yard trimmings:
  1. Piles should be less than 5' x 5' and be placed at least 1' from the curb and 5' from carts, cars and additional piles.
  2. Branches should be less than 5' long and smaller than 6" diameter.
  3. Yard trimmings carts and piles should be kept out of bike lanes and red curbed areas.
  4. For public safety, carts and piles should be set out no more than 24 hours before collection and no later than 6 AM on your collection day.
  5. Sweep up and remove yard trimmings that remain behind after collection; do not re-pile them. Residents can save trimmings for the next collection week or save for composting.
  6. Remember to avoid parking on top of yard trimmings piles in the street and keep yard trimmings out of the garbage and recycling containers. This helps to prevent contamination of recyclables, especially paper.

The Rapid Response Network in Santa Clara County is a community defense project developed to protect immigrant families from deportation. They provide moral and accompaniment support during and after immigration operations in our community, and activate immigration attorneys when needed. The number is (408) 290-1144.

Briefly, these four things will happen when contacting the RRN:
  • Bilingual dispatchers (Eng/Spanish) will help the caller assert their rights over the phone. [For other languages, a third party interpreter service will be connected to the call.]
  • The Network dispatcher will send trained Rapid Responders to the impacted area. They will confirm if a raid is taking place and conduct legal observation of any ICE agents.
  • If someone was detained or is at risk of being detained, we activate immigration attorneys immediately.
  • The Network provides moral and family support to community members who have had a loved one detained by immigration.
For more information, contact  or call (408) 278-2186 .
As we approach the one-year commemoration of the Coyote Creek Flood, we want to thank all who provided assistance and housing to those individuals and families that were impacted by this unfortunate event.  It is with your help that we were successful in rehousing 210 households, but there is more work to do. Currently, there are still 25 households that remain displaced by the flood and need new permanent housing. 
If you have any apartments available for rent between the ranges of $1,500 to $2,700 a month, please contact Lindsey Caldwell at Lindsey is working directly with the Coyote Creek flood survivors.

Each collection is unlimited and will be picked up curbside by your recycling collection company. Eligible large items include mattresses, sofas, refrigerators, and tires, but not propane tanks or construction debris. Call to schedule you appointment:
