Letter from Dave Cortese on D10 Dems Endorsements

Cortese for Mayor Banner

This campaign has always been about community and bringing neighborhoods together. That is why I am honored to receive the Almaden/Blossom valley District 10 Democrats Club endorsement. The message is clear. From street to street, house to house, neighbor to neighbor, people have endorsed the vision of my campaign which is inclusive and built on collaboration. I’m proud of that message and proud to have the support of the D10 Democrats Club.
I ask you to help me spread my positive vision for San Jose of bringing city hall closer to the people by contributing or volunteering today. Together we can make San Jose a safer, stronger, more prosperous city for future generations.
