My name is Carmen Montano. I am a public servant, currently serving as Vice Mayor in Milpitas.
I am running for Mayor of Milpitas this year 2022 and have an established website since 2021.
I was recently informed by several residents that Milpitas Councilmember Anthony Phan has “purchased” a domain under my name ”carmenmontano.com” to deceive the public. When the public does a public search to reach out to me, it goes directly to Anthony Phan’s website instead of carmenmontano4mayor.com.
This behavior is unethical, intrusive, and evasive. There is no “reasonable” purpose for this “Identity Theft”. My name is my identity! My person! My being!
I am a public servant and conduct myself in a mature and professional manner over 15 plus years of public office.
I have never seen or experienced such an invasive intrusion in my life as a citizen and servant of the people of Milpitas.
Numerous citizens have expressed to me what chicanery and unethical thing to do to anyone, especially since Anthony Phan serves the public as a Milpitas City councilmember!
Vice Mayor of Milpitas
