District Newsletter, 8/12/21


I am pleased to invite you to my 9/11 Memorial Ceremony. This 20th-Anniversary Ceremony will be on Saturday, September 11th, from 10:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. at the Alameda County Fairgrounds Amphitheatre, 4501 Pleasanton Ave, 94566. Enter at Yellow Gate on Pleasanton Avenue. Please park at the ACE Train Parking lot.

Twenty years ago, our nation was attacked, and 2,977 people were killed, and thousands more were injured at the World Trade Center in New York City. We lost family members, loved ones, and our first responders. We are asking you to join us to take a pause and remember all those who lost their lives on that tragic day. We have multiple agencies joining us to speak, such as Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, Alameda County Fire Department, Pleasanton-Livermore Fire Department, Camp Parks, and a special guest speaker.

The State Health Officer issued two new Orders requiring vaccinations for health care workers and proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before indoor visits. 

  • The first order requires workers at health care settings to be fully vaccinated or receive their second dose by September 30, 2021
  • The second public health order directs hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and intermediate care facilities to verify that visitors are fully vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19 in the prior 72 hours before indoor visits effective August 11. 

Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status unless you are less than 2 years old, medically unable, or hearing impaired. Face coverings are not required when: 

  • In one's own residence or with members of your household
  • Working in a closed room or office alone
  • Actively preforming an activity that cannot be done while wearing a face cover(e.g., actively eating or drinking, swimming, or showering in a fitness facility, or obtaining a medical or cosmetic service requiring removal of a face covering)

COVID-19 precautions prevent and stop disease

We continue to remind county residents and our partners of the protections provided by:

  • Getting vaccinated.
  • Wearing a mask indoors.
  • Frequent handwashing for all or hand sanitizer in multiple public settings to support good hand hygiene.

Last Friday I attended Oakland Midnight Basketball. This program was designed by our Probation Department for youth development and to reduce violence. This program provides a safe activity on Friday nights, connects players to local resources, and foster positive relationships between players, peers, and mentors! This is truly an incredible program and I am happy I was able to attend it! For more information: https://www.oaklandmidnightbasketball.com/


One of best thing about being in Public Office is to help those in need, in particular, my good friend Shawn Costello. Shawn has been a resident in Dublin for over 15 years. He has lived in his apartment complex for over 12 years. He struggled every day trying to get into the front door of his building and instead, he would have to use the parking garage. I am now excited to share with you that Shawn has access to use the front door to his apartment building with his a newly installed "clicker". This would not be possible without the help of the amazing staff at EAH Housing.

Thank you EAH!

Dine Out In Fremont This September! 

Beat the heat and get out of your own kitchen next month by trying the delicious cuisine of local Fremont restaurants. The Fremont Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Fremont, is hosting the First Annual Dine Out In Fremont program for the entire month of September. Diners can enter themselves for drawings of restaurant gift cards followed by a grand prize at the end of the month.

Here’s How it Works:

  • To enter into the drawing, customers can email receipts from participating restaurants to DineOut@FremontBusiness.com or drop off to the Fremont Chamber Office at 39488 Stevenson Place, Suite 100.
  • Once a customer reaches $25 in receipts, they are automatically entered for a chance to win a restaurant gift card.
  • Every $25 in receipts earns an entry into the periodic drawing and also into the grand prize drawing.
  • Questions? Call the Fremont Chamber of Commerce at 510-795-2244 or email DineOut@FremontBusiness.com.

Interested businesses can sign up by completing the participation form by August 10. All restaurants in Fremont are eligible to participate, and there is no entry fee (besides one $25 gift certificate) to participate for Fremont Chamber members as well as non-members to aid in COVID recovery. Restaurants are also encouraged to offer special promotions and meals.
