Rishi's Priorities

I reject dark tainted money!

As a hi-tech executive, I was transferred by IBM to Silicon Valley from Michigan. I fell in love with the Bay Area. My wife, a networking industry professional, and I are raising our two sons. We found our American dream in Saratoga. We also discovered deep joy in giving back, solving the problems of our community and helping to better people's lives. That is why I am running for Congress.

As a mechanical engineer, elected leader, and community activist, I was keenly interested in tackling tough challenges and delivering results. In my time as a council member for Saratoga, I successfully reduced burglaries, defeated many San Jose Water Company rate hikes, challenged PG&E’s gutting of California’s solar program, pushed for the audit of HCD’s RHNA numbers, stopped detrimental overdevelopment in an environmentally sensitive zone, and stopped a road repair tax while favoring fiscal optimization measures. I was honored to be reelected with the highest votes in 64 years of Saratoga's election history.

My run for Congress is about bringing back integrity and a getting-things-done approach to political office. I would be honored to have your vote in the primary election on March 5th, 2024.

Here are 5 reasons.
