Dear Neighbors and Friends,
It's an incredible privilege to serve Berkeley as Vice Mayor and as Councilmember for District 5, representing the neighborhoods where I grew up and have raised my own family.
Over the past few years, we've made important progress on issues like affordable housing, homelessness and the environment. Now our community is being challenged like never before.
As we come together to move through COVID-19, protect against smoke and fires, and address deep inequities in our society, we continue to uphold our Berkeley values, acting decisively for the well-being of every member of our community, and ensuring support for those with the greatest needs. These values, of caring for all with a strong focus on equity, have defined my entire life.
Because Berkeley is more than just a place. It’s the core of who we are and what we stand for. Thank you so much for joining me as we continue to stand for, and stand up for, Berkeley.
