June 2016 Ballot Statement

As a mother, lifelong Hayward resident, homeowner, working professional and active community volunteer, it is a privilege serving Hayward residents as your City Councilmember.

My roots in Hayward run deep. I grew up here, attended local schools and earned my undergraduate and Masters degrees from CSU East Bay in Hayward. My family has owned and operated a restaurant in downtown Hayward for 50 years. As a probate court investigator, I advocate everyday to ensure that individuals’ rights are protected and upheld. My public service journey began over 12 years ago. I’ve served as Chair of both the City’s Human Services Commission and Planning Commission, and as a member of the City’s Sustainability Committee.

As your Councilmember, I am providing leadership to improve public safety, strengthen our economic and sustainability measures, and build a 21st century library. Whether in professional or city council work, I strive to serve with integrity, optimism and a spirit of goodwill. Your support will help me continue leading to ensure a safe community, accessible, responsive government, and a shared vision for Hayward. Working together, we can live, work, play, grow and thrive in Hayward. I would be honored to have your vote on June 7th.
