It is my distinct honor to serve as the Alameda County Supervisor for District 3 alongside my esteemed colleagues serving the other Districts in the County.

District 3 is wonderfully diverse in cultural heritage, as displayed in Oakland’s Chinatown, Little Saigon, Fruitvale, San Antonio, Melrose, and Havenscourt communities. The District continues through the rich east bay heritage of the island city of Alameda, the industrious city of San Leandro, and is anchored by the unincorporated area of San Lorenzo and part of Hayward Acres. The entire District is enhanced by diversity as we celebrate our differences and come together to address the issues that affect all of us. My goal is to learn more about our residents and their unique perspectives to define issues and collectively create solutions. My priorities are:

  • Safety – Citizen safety, reducing gun violence, drug and alcohol abatement, school and pedestrian safety.
  • Mental Health and Healthcare- Continue and enhance the County’s safety net services for everyone. Expand the capacity of our existing facilities to increase the number of residents that can be served, especially for mental health conditions. Support our community health clinics to provide more resources to better serve our residents.
  • Housing- Increase housing stock for everyone. Increase housing options for the homeless and provide navigation services to move people to self-sufficiency.
  • Economic Development- Provide support for small businesses in our communities and maximize their procurement opportunities with the County, and increase employment opportunities to create wealth in our neighborhoods.

While we are getting our office in order, please feel free to email me at BOS.District3@acgov.org or call (510) 272-6693. I look forward to hearing from you.
