May 2021 Newsletter
Hello, District 4 Residents
It pains me to begin this way because what happened on May 26 should never happen in a place of work, worship, education, entertainment or anywhere, for that matter: a mass shooting right here in San Jose. My heart grieves for the 9 VTA employees who were killed on May 26 as they prepared to serve all of us by keeping our public transportation running -- just as they did over the past 14 months, serving on the front lines during the pandemic. I am holding their families and friends along with the entire VTA community in my heart. May their memories be for a blessing and for a call to action that we make our communities safe for all of us. If you’d like to offer financial support to those who were directly impacted by the tragedy, tax-deductible donations can be made at Working Partnerships USA.
