City Manager David Brandt is a Cupertino native yet he brings a broad range of skills and experience to the job. He has a Bachelor of Arts in economics from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Master of Arts degree in Urban Planning from the University of Michigan. He has also received his juris doctorate from the University of Wisconsin. David practiced land-use law in Oakland with a private firm before working for the City of Alameda for 10 years. Immediately prior to coming to Cupertino, he served as City Manager in Redmond, Oregon.
David’s time in Cupertino has been eventful. Completion of the public approval process for Apple Campus 2, is just one of many projects throughout Cupertino. Many of the most important changes he has made have been to how the city organizes its finances and services. Fundamental to the changes to the organization during his tenure has been a significant expansion of the city’s commitment to transparency and accountability.

Our guest speaker for April 23rd was to be David Glynn, Past President Liz Gallegos-Glynn’s stepson but he was called away on business so his dad stepped in and did a GREAT JOB.
A protégé of legendary coach Frank Caroll, David Glynn has established himself as a top-level figure skating coach. Glynn has taught competitive figure skating for 14 years out of Sharks Ice in San Jose, Calif., where he has developed numerous U.S. athletes, including 2014 U.S. Olympic Team member Polina Edmunds.
He began coaching Edmunds when she was 4-years-old. Under Glynn's tutelage, she won the 2013 junior national title, qualified for the 2013 Junior Grand Prix Final, and captured a runner-up finish at the 2014 National Championships to clinch her first Olympic berth at age 15.
