STOP The Destruction of Single Family Homes in Silicon Valley

The Destruction of Single Family Homes in Silicon Valley

Contributed by:  Rowena Turner, Councilmember City of Monte Sereno        

Effective January 2022, in the Bay Area, as in all of California, the recently passed SB9 and SB10 laws allow developers to build multi-story and multi-unit buildings which could be next door to your single family home. This can be done without regard to traffic gridlock, over-crowding of schools, fire and police access in case of emergencies.

For example, single family neighborhoods in a city will be allowed up to six units on any single lot. SB9 would preempt local zoning by allowing from 4 to 8 units on what is now one single family lot and exempt developers from paying for infrastructure improvements. SB 10 would allow cities and counties to both:  approve up to 10 units on single family lots without environmental review and to undo voter-approved protection of open space and urban boundaries.

How would you feel about having the house next to you torn down and, potentially, 8 new units built in its place?  With only 4-foot setbacks and no parking required.  10-unit apartment buildings could be scattered throughout your neighborhood – again with minimal setbacks and parking required.  With only 1 parking per unit, more cars will be parked on your streets.

Many of our Cities are caught in a vise.  How do we prevent this destruction from happening in our cities?  What can we do?

Statewide groups are now forming to prevent this from happening.  To find out more, click here:

January 26th SVARW Meeting

Alpha, Delta, Omicron, Yikes!!!

Are You Prepared?

And Should You Believe The “Science”?

We’re in the middle of cold and flu season, and now we’ve been warned of a COVID-19 “winter of severe illness and death”. Is this real or is this part of the Great Reset scheme we’ve all been watching lately? And what can we do to make sure we’re ready for whatever comes our way?

Our January meeting is dedicated to assuring that we’re all prepared with the latest resources and knowledge on this virus that has sieged the whole world. We have two distinguished speakers joining us this month. Dr. Richard Fox, MD, JD, a pediatric pulmonologist practicing in Los Gatos, and SVARW’s own Jane Kearney, who has over two decades of experience in clinical psychology.

Jane Kearney will give us a brief update on the psychological costs of both the virus and our governments’ response as well as some tips to fortify our mental health during this extremely challenging time. She has compiled a resource sheet of useful information for us on treatments, providers, and studies to consider should you or someone you know become ill.

Dr. Fox will offer an overview of preventative medicines and treatments for COVID-19. He’ll also discuss his views on vaccine efficacy (hint, they come with never-ending boosters), and that they are harmful to younger persons.

He will discuss the fraud perpetrated to justify the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorizations that have been used to roll out useless vaccines at the expense of offering early treatment drugs like ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and fluvoxamine.

He will also discuss his view that the mishandled COVID-19 pandemic is intentional and has been used by some for their own profit and by others to seize and hold power at the expense of our freedoms and liberties.

Dr. Fox received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota and has been in practice for more than 20 years as a pediatric pulmonologist. He has treated many patients for both COVID-19 prevention and actual infection, the latter including patients from age 13 to 98, including minorities, with no deaths and only one non-ICU hospitalization (the 98 y.o.). You can find his views of this subject at his website,, where you will also find links to request preventive medicines and supplements and for early treatment of COVID-19, if necessary. Join us so you, too, are prepared to get through our promised dark winter!

Urgent-Stop Vaccine Mandate in San Jose for Private Businesses

On August 24th, the San Jose City Council voted unanimously to require proof of vaccination to attend any gathering of 50 or more people in a city-owned facility (i.e., SAP Arena, Convention Center, Center of Performing Arts).

Now the San Jose City Council is coming after PRIVATE businesses!


In Mayor Liccardo’s Memorandum to the City Council dated August 18th, (1) he first proposes to require PROOF of vaccinations to enter city-owned facilities and then to (2) consider requiring PROOF of vaccination for indoor dining, theaters, gyms and other PRIVATELY-OWNED facilities.

If this vaccine mandate passes, it means that SVARW cannot meet at THREE FLAMES.

It a FREE country, the owner of a business has the right to determine who they should allow into their business and who they should exclude.  This is not about whether people should be vaccinated or not.  This is about GOVERNMENT overreach.  OUR GOAL IS TO STOP THIS PLAN FROM BEING VOTED ON BY THE SAN JOSE CITY COUNCIL.

Download and Distribute Flyer to Restaurants in San Jose:

Flyer in English                 Flyer in Spanish

Vietnamese Flyer

Tell the owners of the restaurant to contact their city council member and tell them to stay out of their business.

Don’t live in San Jose?  If this vaccine mandate passes in San Jose, it is only a matter of a short time when it will be adopted by other municipalities.

Wanted Candidates to Run for School Board Informational Meeting

Invitation to Informational Meeting

Stop Marxist Indoctrination of Our Children

Ethnic studies, when taught constructively, can build empathy and understanding while combating racism. Unfortunately, much of ethnic studies that are being taught in our schools is based on Critical Ethnic Studies, which pits students against each other by defining them as victims or oppressors based on the color of their skin.

The California Legislature is close to passing AB 101, which would mandate teaching ethnic studies as a graduation requirement.  School districts in Santa Clara County are not wasting anytime in pushing Critical Race Theory throughout all grade levels.  As written, the bill does not include specific content but leaves the option of curriculum to each school district.

Conservative school board trustees can work with parent groups to demand a modified curriculum in their local districts.

Please consider running for school board!

SVARW and SVGOP are hosting an informational meeting so concerned people like you can find out more about running for school board.  We also are encouraging those who would like to help good candidates get elected to school boards to attend as well.

We will cover basic information including:

  • Requirements to run for office.
  • Opportunities open to you for the November 2022 election.
  • Process for getting your name on the ballot.
  • Timeline for running for office.
  • What you should be doing now in preparation to run for office
  • Next steps if you choose to run

Current school board trustees will share their experiences about what the position entails and about their campaigns for school board.

Board and Commission Opportunities in Santa Clara County—Apply Now!

Board and Commission Opportunities in Santa Clara County—Apply Now!

Looking at the challenges inflicted on our lives by “the government”, our first reaction might be “I need to run for office”.  It is a noble desire to want to impact the government, but running for office and getting elected are two different things.  There is a much swifter route to impact your local community and that is to be appointed to a city or county Board or Commission.

Each of the 15 municipalities in Santa Clara County as well as the county government, have opportunities for citizen to serve in both advisory and decision making positions.  Being appointed and serving on a Board or Commission is a great way to understand how the local government works, the issues faced and it looks great on your resume if you do decide to run for office.

Unlike running for an office, vacancies in these positions happen at various times and you need to apply when there are openings.  Qualifications vary by position from just being a resident of the city/town to fulfilling other qualifications.

Go to the Boards and Commissions tab on the website and check out the opportunities in your city and Santa Clara County.  Contact Jan Soule at if you are interested in more information.  Remember…if you don’t have a seat in local government…a liberal will have it!
