SAN JOSE, CA – Mountain View Mayor Lucas Ramirez this week endorsed Sajid Khan, a public defender running for Santa Clara District Attorney.
Khan has said he is aware of how important it is to put an end to injustice, supports the efforts of Black Lives Matter movement and wants to fix systemic racism and mass incarceration. Khan also said he plans on investing in mental health services and wants to address the root causes of crime.
Ramirez previously served on the City of Mountain View’s Human Relations Commission and Planning Commission. He has worked with many community programs such as the League of Women Voters.
Ramirez states that “Sajid’s work as a public defender provides him the right perspective to craft a holistic approach to public safety and justice that’s desperately needed in our country.”
The two men said they look forward to working together to achieve their goals for Santa Clara County. They also note they understand the importance of the connection between various government systems as well as the local government.
Sajid said he is “honored to receive Mayor Ramirez’s endorsement of our campaign,” adding to a long list of endorsers, including San Jose City Councilmember Sergio Jimenez, Assemblymember Alex Lee, Mountain View Councilmember Ellen Kamei, Silicon Valley Young Democrats and South Bay Progressive Alliance.
