Help us reach our goal
Advance Public Health
Ensuring Public Health is a core mission of the County of Santa Clara. The County directs over $5 billion of its $8 billion annual budget toward improving community health, disease control and prevention, and hospital and clinic operations.
Keep Public Hospitals Open

We must ensure access to public hospitals. The County purchased O’Connor Hospital, Saint Louise Regional Hospital, and DePaul Health Center out of bankruptcy in early 2019. Our challenge moving forward is to ensure these hospitals run efficiently and stay open.

Mental Health Care

We must improve care for the mentally ill. Mental illness is brain illness that affects the whole body. Mental illness drives many other problems that tax our county resources: homelessness, foster care, substance abuse, domestic violence, and criminal activity.
Improve Housing Affordability

I believe in a market-based approach to advancing housing development and lowering the middle-class cost of housing. We need more housing units at all price points and closer to jobs.

Deliver on Measure A
Our county leaders must deliver on the commitments of Measure A, especially locating affordable housing in the most unaffordable areas of our county.
Support Responsible Development
We must encourage all cities to promote responsible development and neighborhood integration. Shifting community sentiment by providing development safeguards is critical to expanding the housing supply.
More Effective Government

The County of Santa Clara needs to operate with more transparency, fiscal accountability, and focus on its core mission. Every dollar spent outside the county’s core responsibilities should be treated like a budget cut to those core missions. We must be careful stewards of public resources in good and bad times alike.

Address Homelessness Now
Addressing homelessness is the responsibility of the County, tied to other issues like mental health, substance abuse, and criminal justice – all county responsibilities. It’s time to change our approach and insist on clean communities, clean streets, and compassion and recovery for those living on the streets.
Cleanup Traffic Congestion
Traffic in Santa Clara County is a mess. The County needs to do what it can on the roads it controls, like Capitol Expressway and Montague Expressway.

Independent. Experienced.
Fiscally Responsible.

About John Leyba

Neighborhood Leader and
Finance and Operations Manager

I was a foster child for the first five years of my life and lucky to be adopted by a loving and supportive family. I’m running for supervisor because I want the county to work better for all residents and for the most vulnerable, especially for children.

I’m running because I have been an agent for change and reform in several organizations. I have served as a community leader, neighborhood advocate, and planning commissioner, so I have experience pursuing goals and policies but also making tough decisions. I have 15 years of experience in finance, operations, and project and construction management in Fortune 500 companies.
