He makes many campaign promises to get elected, then he will do whatever the highest bidder wants. He has done it before....and he will do it again. He has no problem lying to your face.
His voice and vote goes to the highest bidder. Look how easy it was to buy his vote. After committing to the community numerous times that he would fight SummerHill's development, he supported SummerHill Homes and his campaign received over $14,000. In the graphic below, note the strategic payments to Caserta are right before a vote and a "reward" after a vote regarding the development. Click on the image below to see the details, but here are the payments:

He told members of the community in person (his word) and *in writing* that he would support preservation of the BAREC property. When questioned about lying to the public and not honoring campaign promises during his first election to the Santa Clara City Council in 2002, he replied: "Thank you for then info, what I gave you is fact..." (his spelling, not ours, as these are direct quotes). Caserta approved a quote on a website saying he would support open space, opposing its development (BAREC), by saying: "Let's do the quote, EXCATLY as you have it, please post it on the BAREC webiste." See Caserta's approved quote here. He ultimately voted to wipe out the open space and support the SummerHill development. We even put up lawn signs for him and helped him get elected by walking precincts. He deceived all of us.
"Make no mistake about it. A vote for Dominic is a vote to preserve open space on the BAREC property." Caserta stated
on his website when running for election in 2005. You can see this in the article Metro published called Bait and Switch. His campaign would like to think we are making all this up, but it is in black and white. He voted against his commitment to the community. Caserta is a sellout.
