Vote for Tian Harter, an action oriented environmentalist!

I'm running for City Council because Mountain View is a great place to live and/or work and I want it to stay that way. We need:

Better transit services

Pedestrian and bicyclist safety

Solar power in city buildings

More affordable housing, especially near transit

Working together on environmental issues


I have lived in Mountain View since 1984, except for eight years in the 1990s when I worked in Sacramento, Washington DC, and Orange County. When I left I was still an electrical and software engineer, working for computer and information management companies. In 1999 I returned to Mountain View with enough resources to work full time as an environmental activist. Since then I have focused on building awareness of the need for structural changes in our economy to deal with climate change issues.

Last spring I was one of the other Candidates for U.S. Senator. I got 37% of the votes in the Green Party Primary and was the front runner in many counties including ours. The goal of that campaign was to tell as many people as possible "we need to stop voting for oil companies at the gas pump." I have a track record of running clean campaigns that get the word out on important issues.
