After careful consideration and consultation with the community and my family, I

In taking this action, I do so with the best interest of my hometown and my
community at heart. San Jose has blessed me and my family, and I have always
sought to serve this community with the utmost of integrity and highest personal
I was looking forward to serving the people of San Jose with fairness and
integrity as the Independent Police Auditor, to serving ethically and honorably for
years to come. I place the honor and integrity of San Jose ahead of myself.
I hope that by taking this action, the Mayor and Council can ensure that the
process for hiring the Independent Police Auditor is done in a transparent and fair
process that reflects the importance of this critical position.
