Supervisor David Haubert, 3/16/23 Newsletter


Greetings from Supervisor Haubert

Dear Friends,

Greetings and happy Womens History Month! As we find ourselves halfway through the month of March, I hope you have been able to reflect on the countless contributions women have made to our nation, our community, and our lives. Women have played an integral role in shaping our country, from the suffragettes who fought for the right to vote, to the female scientists who have made groundbreaking discoveries, to the women who serve in public office today.

As your elected official, I urge you to join me in recognizing and celebrating the impact of women in District 1 and beyond. Let us take this opportunity to appreciate the progress we have made, and the work that still needs to be done to achieve gender equality. I encourage everyone to participate in events and activities throughout the month that honor the accomplishments and contributions of women.

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

Culinary Angels at the Warming Center

I recently had the opportunity to commend Culinary Angels for serving nutritious meals to unhoused Tri-Valley community members at the Livermore Warming Center. When Ronnie Forbes of One Nation Dream Makers and I decided to open a warming center in Livermore, our goal was to provide a warm shelter for our unhoused residents every night from 6 PM to 8 AM whenever the weather forecasts 20% or more chance of rain and/or temperatures fall to 45 degrees or lower. Seeing an opportunity to support this effort, Founder and Executive Director Lisa McNaney took action.

“We are already in the business of preparing, packaging and delivering healing meals to those in need and are very pleased to partner with other like-minded nonprofits to better support our community,” said McNaney. Thanks to their dedication, the unhoused residents in Livermore can find comfort and nourishment during the toughest times of the year. We applaud the work of Culinary Angels and encourage everyone to support their mission.

I am proud to announce that my office has awarded $300,000 to Rotary clubs in Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, and Fremont as part of the American Rescue Plan ACT (ARPA) to address the negative economic impact caused by the COVID pandemic.

“Rotary’s mission is ‘Service above Self’,” said Rotary 5170 District Gov. Savita Vaidhyanathan following the announcement. “The dynamics of all the clubs working together with the funds will result in amazing projects that reflect the positive way Rotarians address the challenges of this post-Covid-19 world.” She said, “Imagine Rotary’s positive impact working with Supervisor Haubert’s office and the local clubs. We can make a difference.”

Funds will be allocated to support projects and initiatives related to local community needs and organizations for the following categories: homelessness and poverty, K-12 education, and senior support services. “Our Rotary clubs were hit hard by the pandemic,” said Supervisor Haubert. “The clubs do fantastic work in our communities, so I’m happy to see the funds go to the right place.”

National Read Across America Day


What better way to celebrate National Read Across America Day than by reading to our county's youth? This special day, celebrated on March 2nd every year, encourages everyone to pick up a book and share the joy of reading with children of all ages. Whether it's a classic like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, or a new favorite, reading with kids helps develop literacy skills, promotes imagination, and encourages children to be kind to each other and to themselves.

Thank you to Altamont Creek Elementary school for inviting me to engage with their students on this important day!

Holi Celebration 


Despite the rain, the Holi Celebration in Fremont was a huge success! This vibrant event, filled with color and joy, brought together people of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate the arrival of spring. Even with the challenging weather conditions, attendees were undeterred and kept the festivities going strong. It was an honor to present a proclamation at the event, recognizing the cultural significance of Holi and the community's dedication to keeping the tradition alive. The resilience and determination shown by everyone at the celebration was truly inspiring, and it serves as a reminder that even when faced with obstacles, we can still find joy and come together as a community.

Thank you to Festival of Globe for hosting such an important event in District 1!


American Red Cross Month

We were honored to present a proclamation in recognition of their tireless efforts and unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.

AC Library: Tool Lending Program


Borrow not just books—Borrow tools from Alameda County Library!

Alameda County Library announces two new tool lending collections at the Irvington and Centerville Libraries. Instead of purchasing tools that might be used once, or a couple of times a year, library members can now borrow them for free.

Much like book lending, tool lending encourages the reuse and sharing of resources that reduce our environmental footprint,” said Cindy Chadwick, County Librarian.

How Tool Lending Works:

  • An Alameda County Library card and signed waiver is required before borrowing tools.
  • Tools can be borrowed for up to 3 weeks and cannot be renewed or placed on hold.  
  • Tools must be picked up at and returned to the owning library.
