Jonathan is a long time San José resident who will listen, learn, and act to benefit all the people and businesses of our great and diverse district.


Jonathan is committed to making San José safe and clean for us all.  He will say no to high tax increases and demand changes to the programs that are misspending our tax dollars.  He believes our cost of living is too high and our quality of life is too low.  Jonathan does not stand for enabling problems to get worse, instead he will develop lasting solutions to solve our City’s most difficult problems like homelessness, which he believes should be addressed by solving the drug and mental health crises that are currently being neglected by local governments. 


Jonathan Fleming wants your voice to be heard and will ensure we are all represented as our next District 2 City Councilmember!

For years we have been asking our Council Office and city government for the plan to help our homeless neighbors in San José because people are dying in the streets, blight continues to grow worse, and current methodology does not work.  The fact is that homelessness has increased by 52% since the 2016 election and immediate action is imperative.


I am excited to share with you my plan for our homeless which focuses on rehabilitation emphasizing sobriety, treatment for mental illness, and job placement through immediate housing in prefabricated university-like campuses away from schools and neighborhoods, with a goal of self-supportiveness while saving half a billion dollars in construction costs over current practices.

The Fleming Homeless Plan is built upon compassion, fulfilling a vow to fix the system after I was victimized during my own disability.  It is the product of four years of research on homelessness, including my work on the San José Neighborhoods Commission and and my partnership with the academic community at San José State University.
