Our newest Local Voices blogger, Chris Zhang, may look familiar to you. He may have rung your doorbell and introduced himself to you in the fall. Zhang recently ran for City Council and was out knocking on doors, shaking hands and kissing babies. Well, I'm not so sure he kissed anybabies, but I know he was out meeting neighbors looking for votes.
He may not have won a council seat but that hasn't stopped him from being a leader in the community. I predict Zhang's name and face will become a common one in Cupertino because he seems determined to do things that are in the vein of giving back to his community.
Recently he accepted a leadership role with , a grassroots group born right here on Cupertino Patch, and one that is working hard to improve traffic conditions in the city, specifically around the schools. It's a small group of your neighbors who are volunteering their time to make the roads safer and less congested.
Zhang's first blog entry is a fun, personal one, and I learned something from it, too. (I learned how to say "Happy New Year" in Chinese!) Please join me in making Chris Zhang welcome to our list of contributors and leave him a message on Patch.
