Start Thanksgiving Day off on the right foot at the Applied Materials “Silicon Valley Turkey Trot”.

With less than 30 days left until the election, we are now in the home stretch of getting Measure B across the finish line. November 8 will be the culmination of more than a three year effort to relieve traffic congestion and repair roads in Santa Clara County.
Measure B will deliver the improvements we need with the accountability we deserve.
Measure B faces a high hurdle, as it needs 66.67 percent of the vote to be successful. The 2/3rds vote requirement ensures that Measure B dollars will go solely to Measure B projects approved by voters.
On top of that, Measure B includes an additional layer of security by requiring a 75 percent vote of the 12 member VTA Board to make even a single change to the Measure. Those safeguards make Measure B one of the most specific and accountable ballot measures in recent memory.
So what does Measure B do exactly? Those details can be found in the official 75-word ballot question.

Anna Roselli grew up in Campbell and is now raising her own family as well as running her own business, PennyLane Frozen Yogurt & Candy, in her favorite city. Anna named her company after one of her fondest childhood memories, hunting for ‘treasure’ with her grandma. They would find pennies scattered near a fence near San Tomas Expressway and as a toddler, Anna always found this thrilling. And, as luck would have it, PennyLane is located in a new development at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and San Tomas Expressway adjacent to a community of townhouse called…Penny Lane.
In addition to paying homage to her own childhood, Anna wanted PennyLane Frozen Yogurt & Candy to bring to life all that is delightful about growing up to her store including bright colors, whimsical characters and a fun atmosphere. Read more!

The Campbell City Council will be making their final vote on the minimum wage increase at the October City Council meetings. The foregone conclusion is that the City Council will join San Jose and other cities within the County in applying the $15 minimum wage to all employers.
You may remember that the State of California is already raising the minimum wage to $15 by 2022. It is a phase-in program of raising the wage to $10.50 next year, then $11.00 in 2018 and a dollar every year until it reaches $15 in 2022. Also, we can’t forget the inflation factor that is applied every year thereafter of 3.5% (that’s at least a 50 cent increase every year). Evidently this is not fast enough for the City, therefore, they want to jumpstart a quicker increase to $15 prior to 2020. Read more!
