Introducing Luke Wu

It gives me great honor to introduce our new intern, Luke Wu. Mr. Wu, an incredibly bright and driven mechanical engineering & business administration double major at UC Berkeley, will be coordinating an internship program for the District 1 office. With the goal of educating our community’s youth on the functions and services of Alameda County, Luke imagines a comprehensive internship program focused on critical topics such as financial literacy, immigration, public health policy, homelessness, military/veterans/ROTC, engineering, mental health and much more. 

From his enrollment in the UC Berkeley US Navy Reserves Officer Training Corp to his upcoming internship with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Weapons and Complex Integration Division, Luke wishes to share his broad array of knowledge with the future leaders of our County. In fact, as a high school student and Chairmen of the Dublin Mayor’s Council, Luke successfully oversaw over 8 large community projects, bringing financial literacy, mental health awareness and environmental activism to Dublin schools.

If you are interested in speaking to Mr. Wu regarding his District 1 Internship Program, please call our office.

I recently had the opportunity to Walk-a-Day in the life of an SEIU 2015 In Home Support Services (IHSS) worker. The gentleman helping me perform a tracheostomy suction on his son, Cesar, is a hard-working IHSS employee who exemplifies altruism. Cesar may suffer from muscular dystrophy and complications due to a surgical procedure, but that doesn’t keep him down.
