I recently honored Laura Constantine for her kind service connecting breast cancer patients to HERS Breast Cancer Foundation. The work Laura and HERS does for our community inspires me, so the District 1 office also donated $5,000 to HERS. This donation will help provide post-surgical products for low-income, underinsured, and uninsured patients.

Lower Alameda Creek Fish Passage Improvement Program

The Alameda County Water District (ACWD) celebrated the completion of the Lower Alameda Creek Fish Passage Improvement Program.
