Dave Fadness

May He Rest In Peace

September 29, 2015

We have all lost a wonderful friend, a true gentleman, and a tireless champion for all that is right in our city and in our country. 

A little over a year ago, CFR Co-Founder Dave Fadness fell from a ladder and became paralyzed from the shoulders down.  Due to complications, he was never able to leave the hospital. Throughout his ordeal, he continued to live a life of courage, humility, resourcefulness, and humor. He never ceased his concern and passion for his community and his network of friends, on all sides of the aisle.

We have lost a gentle, kind, considerate man who gave his time, talent and treasure to help improve the quality of life for his fellow citizens with zero fanfare.  He never let his medical issues interfere with his goal of helping all the residents of San Jose.  

True to his character and grit Dave fought a courageous battle. We are all better for the spirit and conviction that Dave had. He was a good and caring person that lived his life with great principles. He led by example; his passing leaves a huge void in our community.
He and his wife, Aiko, have been an inspiration. He cannot be replaced, and will forever be remembered by us all.

We in CFR will honor Dave by continuing to follow the vision he set, and which our group exemplifies.

"We loved you, Man!!!"


Read CFR's Response to the 2015 Mayor's Budget Message here.


CFR strongly asserts that all future city tax ballot measures must include the following stipulations in order to enhance the city's ability to be fiscally responsible and accountable to its citizens:

Proposed Stipulations on New Taxes                             Finding $147M in San Jose's Finances

Skeptical About How City Government Spends Your Hard-Earned Tax Dollars?
Concerned about sharp spikes in crime?     Potholes costing you money?

It's time for the citizens of San Jose to take a closer look
at how our City leaders spend the money we give them.

Join us in saving San Jose!
