ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

PETE CONSTANT is a longtime San Jose resident, with experience both as a police officer (14 years) and small business owner (over 20 years) and community leader. On November 6, he won his race for San Jose City Council, District 1, making him the only Republican on the 9-member council. He'll talk to us about the challenges he'll face representing San Jose residents (a.k.a. taxpayers), goals for his term in office, and what SVTA members can do to support the principles of fiscal conservatism he hopes to bring to the Council of the city of San Jose--the "capital of Silicon Valley."

JOHN R. GRAHAM is Director of Health Care Studies at Pacific Research Institute, author of a paper on the challenge of the uninsured in California, and the primary author of the Health Policy Prescriptions series, which recently has addressed reforming Medicaid, expanding Health Savings Accounts, & pharmaceutical legal liabilities. He has written on prescription drug regulation, pricing medicines, and medical savings accounts. Before joining Pacific Research Institute, Graham was Director of Health & Pharmaceutical Policy Research at Canada’s Fraser Institute. He speaks frequently on radio and television, and at conferences worldwide.
