Election season is underway in Milpitas. Here’s how to run & who’s already running…

Election Day is less than four months away—November 3, 2020. Milpitas holds its City elections in even-numbered years. In every election, the Mayoral seat is up for grabs (Mayors serve two-year terms). In this election, two Councilmember seats are up for grabs (Councilmembers serve for four years). 

Candidate filing just opened this past Monday, July 13, at 8 a.m., and will remain open until Friday, August 7, at 5 p.m. 

Would-be candidates can initiate their candidacies by setting up a phone appointment with the City Clerk. 

Already running in this year’s Mayoral race are repeat candidate Voltaire Montemayor, a retired geologist, and incumbent Rich Tran, who’s seeking his third term.

For City Council, the current candidates are Planning Commissioner Evelyn Chua, former Planning Commission Vice Chair Demetress Morris, Business Executive Suraj Viswanathan, and Tenant Advocate and Organizer Tiffany Vuong. Current Vice Mayor Bob Nuñez and Councilmember Anthony Phan are running for re-election to City Council, as well.
