"This is a difficult one to answer shortly, but simply stated my goal is the transformation of governance structures from our 200 year old slow and bureaucratic system, into one that is based on interactive technologies to bring our governance structures into the 21st century. If successful, when my work is complete, our government will function at the fast and accelerating pace that our society is currently functioning at, with non-stop real-time interactivity utilizing the internet, cell phones, and snail mail."

Santa Clara County outperformed the rest of California in terms of higher education achievement in 2012.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
