The comments in the San Jose Spotlight following JR Fruen’s attack shows strong community support of Ray Wang.

I’ve known Ray for 20+ years. Whether or not you agree with him, he cares deeply about Cupertino and its residents, and has a lot of support. And the “scathing civil grand jury report” included no names, so I think assigning all the blame to a single person is unfair.

Please post your name when commenting. Criticizing people on public matters should not be done from the shadows. It lends itself to the appearance of politically motivated commentary without it

Basically, Fruen’s progressive buddies want to control the Planning Commission and see Wang as easy target. Fruen and McClintick both run Cupertino for All to support Fruen get highschoolers to do their bidding and do political deals like this to abolish local control and make developers richer. Fruen regularly contacts HCD to put the city staff in hot water. Piece of work.

Here’s a video with R Wang and one of the residents asking why he’s on the agenda.
A lot of good information about how corrupt Cupertino has become in the past 3 months since JR Fruen came to the scene and Hung Wei became mayor.
You can also see why R Wang is so upset with the staff and how they have been incompetent. I can see why R Wang gets so excited about the incompetence.
The best part is when he says any average high schooler could do a better job then the consultant the city hired and paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for.
well worth the watch

This hit piece and others have omitted a key fact: Wang has been elected by his peers on the Planning Commission as Chair twice and as vice-Chair once in his 3 years of service to to Cupertino community.

This controversy seems like it’s a bunch of privileged children behaving badly in the sandbox. I don’t know what the facts are, and this article certainly doesn’t come close to enlightening anyone outside of Cupertino what’s really going on. Long on opinion, short on evidence. But watching the ‘love fest’ interview, I am struck most by how well Mr. Wang puts snarky and smarmy together. Just sayin’.

Ha! That City letter from Wang was spot on! That assistant got fired from a couple of cities and didn’t show up to work in person for a couple of years here during the pandemic, then when it was time to show up she retires. Cupertino Country Club is what City Hall has been called. Complain and staff cries foul and gets the new Council majority to vote as a divisive bloc.
