Sri Muppidi, 26, announced her run for Dublin City Council against eight other candidates on the November ballot, according to Patch, Dublin, California. Sri now lives in West Dublin.
Dublin in Alameda County, Clifornia, 27 miles east from San Francisco, is one of the best places to live in California. Living in Dublin offers residents an urban suburban mix feel and most residents own their homes. In Dublin there are a lot of restaurants, coffee shops, and parks.
“Over the last two decades, Dublin has grown significantly. There’s no downtown center, overcrowding in schools, more traffic, and a lack of affordable housing. And to top it off, 2020 has been an exceptionally difficult year,” wrote Sri Muppidi. “I’m excited to run for Dublin City Council to make some much-needed changes to the city.”
“We need innovative ideas and a diverse perspective to address these current challenges and help build Dublin’s future. The city needs someone who’s thinking long-term, not just for the next 10 years, but for the next 20-30 years. Otherwise, we’ll be paying the price,” added Sri Muppidi.
My priorities are:
- Local Economic Growth
- Downtown Dublin
- Traffic & Infrastructure Development
- Climate Change
- Public Safety
- Controlled & Sustainable Development
