In 2014, I committed to deliver the best for San Leandro residents. My platform focused on public safety, getting our youth engaged, supporting families and working to create a sustainable economic foundation.
Since taking office I have delivered results working with staff, the Council and Mayor to ensure our first responders have the tools and equipment needed to help keep us safe. And most recently, I have asked city staff to develop a long-term hiring plan to increase first responders and enhance public safety.
It was my referral that started Teen Take-Over, a weekly pop-up that provides a safe place with fun activities for teens on long summer nights. I worked with the Alameda County Building and Construction Trades Council to create the Summer Youth Trades Program to give students a hands-on opportunity to explore a career in the building trades. And I am proud that I helped lead the charge to increase the minimum wage to support hard working families.
Since 2014, we have balanced our budgets, grown a strong economic foundation, allocated $30 million to improve local streets and roads, paid down our unfunded liabilities and supported community programs for San Leandro residents.
While I’m proud of my accomplishments, there is so much more to do—and that’s why I’m running for re-election.
Going forward I will work to find solutions to the traffic in our neighborhoods, and in our region. I will work with government leaders to bring affordable housing options to San Leandro for our residents. I will continue to work to ensure we have safe and reliable service from our first responders while finding ways to increase city revenue to protect city services during potential economic downturns.
San Leandro deserves the best and I will continue to give my best to ensure great things happen in San Leandro. I respectfully ask for your vote.
