The following information was released by the campaign of Jay Sondhi for Cypress City Council.
Jay Sondhi held his Cypress City Council Kickoff event this last Friday, August 3, 2012, at his home in Cypress. Attendees included early supporters for his campaign bid for one of the two seats that are open in the 2012 Cypress City Council race.
Following a social hour and dinner, Sondhi spoke to the group about why he is running for a seat on the City Council. He has lived in Cypress for 26 years with his wife and raised his family here. He intends to remain here in his retirement years. Sondhi believes that citizen involvement and participation in city affairs is crucial to the well being of the city. Sondhi said “Cypress is a great city. We need to keep it that way as we find ways to make it better”. Sondhi also addressed the tough economic environment within which the country, state and local governments are functioning and Cypress’ challenges for the future. His noted strengths include his volunteer experiences, his honed professional skills in listening, as well as his legal, financial and applied statistical background.
Jay has been an active volunteer in youth sports, provided leadership for many years to the Boys and Girls Club and currently is the President-Elect of the Kiwanis Club of Cypress, a member of the Board of Directors of the Cypress Chamber of Commerce as well as a founding member and Treasurer of the Cypress Police Foundation. Some of his past professional experiences include analyst in state government in his early career and the head of the Missouri Council on Criminal Justice. He has had considerable corporate legal experience, most recently as senior counsel for Travelers Insurance.
Jay is pleased and appreciative of the vote of confidence that he has received to date. More than 20 individuals have endorsed his candidacy which includes current and former elected officials, business leaders, professionals and community leaders.
