Endorsement Statements

Responds to residents' requests - oversaw trimming of bushes at intersections, making road views safe; he is aware of water issues. Jean Ricket
He is been tireless in his efforts as councilman in Saratoga. He is a relentless pursuer of various efforts especially neighborhood watch and protecting consumer interests like the water department. Carol Manning
Rishi gets things done! He is very productive, hard working and has spectacular vision. John Nielson
Rishi has been instrumental to our success with regards to our Neighborhood Safety Watch program as well as working tirelessly to keep our water rates low and keep our community safe. Daniel Onn, Neighborhood Safety Watch Captain
We would not be able to do it without Rishi's hard work and dedication to our community. I stand by Rishi and am honored to endorse Rishi for running for Congress for District 18 while continuing to put Saratoga and surrounding communities at the forefront. Daniel Onn, Neighborhood Safety Watch Captain
Rishi has been an effective and involved council member who has worked tirelessly for this community. He is personally involved in our issues and the only council member who goes out of his way to reach out to us. I know without doubt that he will do the same for our Congressional District. Susan Cohen
Takes initiative. Gets things done. Phenomenal communication. Pankaj Manglik
Have seen his amazing work in getting our voices heard in all water issues. Have also appreciated his neighborhood watch program. Badrinath Sridharan
I support Rishi because he actually cares about the people who are getting gouged by the water company, among other things. Mike Niday
Rishi--will get things done...and not kick the cans--down the road. Many in politics talk...but, seldom WALK... Jeffrey Aristide
Rishi's heart is in the right place and he executes on his promises Cindy Bianco
Rishi is always there for us, like the recent gas leak, water rate increase, etc. He informs us and fight for our community. Xiaojun Ma
He takes on tough issues that matter to the public Haideh Karkhanechi
Rishi has a proven track record of a great community leader and I know him as a focused, smart and friendly person! Sreen Kosireddy
Rishi cares and does what he cares, most important is he puts efforts to achieve goals to benefit neighbors. Jane Nee
Rishi has been very helpful in holding San Jose Water accountable for its numerous rate hike requests. He is a doer and is very persuasive, getting my wife and I to change our party affiliation so we could vote for him in recent Democratic Party elections. I feel he is authentic and sincere and would do a great job in Congress representing our district. Dave Scott
As a former mayor of Saratoga, I can’t think of anyone more qualified to represent us in Congress than Rishi Kumar. Rishi is not afraid to tackle the critical issues that affect our quality of life. Rishi achieves results without wasting our hard-earned tax dollars in the process. Rishi has demonstrated the fiscal discipline so desperately needed at the national level. His extensive experience in the private sector is necessary to successfully meet the challenges our country faces in the 21st century. Stan Bogosian, Former Mayor and Councilmember, City of Saratoga
All the best to you on your run for higher office against Anna Eschoo, #18. You have my support. Former Councilmember Jack Mallory, Saratoga
