Supervisor David Haubert, 2/9/23 Newsletter


Greetings from Supervisor Haubert

Dear Friends,

As we celebrate Black History Month, it is important to take a moment to recognize and honor the contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout our country's history. Let us reflect on the challenges and struggles African Americans have faced and acknowledge the progress that has been made towards equality and justice. I encourage our communities to also uplift and celebrate the contributions of African Americans, and to recommit ourselves to the ongoing work of creating a more equitable and just society for all. As the new Vice President of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, I promise to share that commitment with you. 

As always, if there is anything that my office can do to assist you regarding County-specific matters, please feel free to reach out at



David Haubert
Alameda County Supervisor, First District

In Memoriam: Supervisor Richard Valle


It is with a heavy heart that we remember our beloved fellow county supervisor, Richard Valle. Supervisor Valle was a strong leader for his community, dedicating his life to public service and making a positive impact on the lives of many. His kindness, wisdom, and unwavering commitment to justice will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Valle's family and loved ones during this difficult time. Richard will forever be remembered as a shining example of selflessness, integrity, and generosity.

Sunol Glen School Flood Clean Up 


My office recently collaborated with the Superintendent of the Sunol Glen School Molleen Barnes and over 100 volunteers to restore the historic campus following recent flood damage.

Under the direction of Superintendent Barnes and Mr. Hoxie, the volunteers worked tirelessly throughout Saturday morning and well into the afternoon. Volunteers shoveled mud, removed debris, restored the garden, raked the field, and even began repairing the damaged play structure. The group worked up a sweat, transforming the entire campus within a matter of hours. My office provided breakfast and lunch for the 100+ team as a ‘thank you’ for their hard work.

To see so many District 1 residents support our little community was nothing short of inspiring. I am so grateful to the Sunol Glen School staff, the Sunol Glen School Community Club, the Sunol leaders, and the many volunteers for making this possible. What Sunol lacks in population, they more than make up for in character and strength. I couldn’t be prouder to represent such an outstanding community. 


Niles Homeless Discussion


Compassionate residents of the Niles community met with the Mayor of Fremont and I to discuss local homeless encampments. It's evident that everyone involved is striving to make changes that keep in mind the well-being of all members of the community. The City of Fremont is engaged and have been asked to take some specific next steps. 


Camp Parks 80th Birthday 


I was honored to commend Park Reserve Forces Training Area Garrison Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Marisol Chalas, for Camp Parks' 80th anniversary. Providing base operations, installation services, and training support for the US Army Reserve and Department of Defense for 80 years, Camp Parks represents a pillar of Alameda County. LTC Chalas’ dedication to protecting our County and Country makes me proud to represent District 1.

Fremont Chinese New Year Celebration


I was delighted to participate in Fremont's first annual Lunar New Year Celebration. This celebration marked the start of the Chinese New Year and showcased the rich cultural traditions of the Chinese-American community in our district. It was a truly special and unforgettable experience, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this historic event and to show my support for our District 1 Chinese-American community.

David Delivers


My office recently awarded a $15,000 grant to Narika, a non-profit with the mission to promote women’s independence, economic empowerment and well-being by helping domestic violence survivors with advocacy, support, and education. 

Narika was founded in 1992 by a group of immigrant women, who identified the need for domestic violence services in the local communities of the Bay Area. These women opened the doors of Narika by use of an informal familial model of service, engaging victims as sisters rather than clients, and providing assistance in several different languages. Their initiative duly evolved into the organized non-profit that today proudly serves the Bay Area.

Ronnie Forbes: MLK Legacy Award


My friend, Ronnie Forbes, was recently presented with the MLK Legacy Award by the Pleasanton Community of Character Collaborative. Founder of the food recovery and delivery non-profit, One Nation Dream Makers (ONDM), Ronnie is not only dedicated but also deeply passionate for feeding the food insecure residents of Alameda County. Congratulations to Ronnie and ONDM for this award and for protecting our county's most vulnerable community members.

Republic Day Celebration


I was honored to commemorate Republic Day with members of our District 1 Indo-American community. This day marks the adoption of India's constitution and celebrates the country's rich cultural heritage. I had the privilege of participating in a flag-hoisting ceremony, where the Indian tricolor was proudly raised to the strains of the national anthem. It was a touching moment, filled with emotion and pride. Afterwards, I joined community members for a cultural program featuring traditional dances and songs, showcasing the diversity and vibrancy of Indian culture. It was a truly memorable and educational experience, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to celebrate this special day with our Indo-American community.
