Meet Savita


My family and I are proud to call Cupertino our home.  We’ve had the pleasure of living here and being active participants in our local community for over 23 years.  Our daughter is a graduate of Cupertino’s excellent public school system. I too am a product of local schools. I took business pre-requisite courses at De Anza College and received my MBA from San Jose State University.

In 2014, you elected me to the Cupertino City Council. Subsequently, in 2016, I served as your Vice Mayor. Due to years of work on transportation issues, with two years on the VTA Policy Advisory Committee, I was appointed to serve on the Board of the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA).

Last year, I was privileged to serve as Mayor of Cupertino. As Mayor, I was honored to attend over 50 events involving each of Cupertino’s diverse ethnic groups.  Currently, I am serving on Airplane Noise Relief Committees, which include FAA, SJC Airport, and Cities Association.

It is my passion to work for the well-being of Cupertino residents. For this reason, I continue to serve on City Council and seek your vote to re-elect me this November.

Healthy communities are built through our residents’ active participation. Even with my City Council duties I am deeply involved in community activities; remaining accessible to you and listening to your feedback.
