Dear Friends,

I encourage you to join me in learning more about the diverse histories and experiences of our AAPI neighbors.

My office recently volunteered with Kids Against Hunger Fremont (KAH)Jabil, Alameda County Supervisor Elisa Márquez,and the California School for the Blind to package over 3,500 meals for Bay Area Community Services (BACS) to support the unhoused in Fremont. 

The collaborative effort proved to be an impactful event for the community. As we filled each package with nutritious food, we couldn't help but feel a sense of fulfillment knowing that our collective efforts would make a tangible difference in the lives of those facing hardships. This event not only showcased the power of unity but also inspired us to continue our commitment to serving and uplifting our community. KAH's dedication toward creating a better world truly serves as an inspiration for Alameda County. 




Tri-Valley Haven Domestic Violence Safety Shelter Rebuild


Architects Rendering: New Shelter 

I'm happy to announce that my office and Tri-Valley Haven have been working together to rebuild the Domestic Violence Safety Shelter, aptly named Shiloh for peace, to ensure local families in crisis will have a safe place to call home for decades to come. Tri-Valley Haven currently runs the only confidential domestic violence shelter in the Tri-Valley and the only shelter that accepts teenage boys as part of families. Unfortunately, after so many years of successfully housing families, the current DV shelter is physically falling apart. To meet the local need, we will expand the capacity to 45 beds, up from 30; The new shelter will help 50% more households, individuals, and children to flourish and attain self-independence!

Tri-Valley Haven recently sheltered “Ana”, a new mom, and her baby. Ana’s husband had become increasingly more abusive during her pregnancy. She ultimately fled to Tri-Valley Haven to save herself and her newborn from his unpredictable physical violence. While at Tri-Valley Haven’s Domestic Violence Safety Shelter, Ana received counseling, case management and life skills education such as parenting classes. She also enrolled in a job readiness program. Today, Ana’s family is safe and well on their way to self-sufficiency.

If you would like to discuss how the new shelter will successfully impact local families and children in need and our community for years to come, please reach out to Christine Dillman, Executive Director of Tri-Valley Haven at or by phone (925) 449-5845 x2707.

Niles Junction Birthday


Happy Birthday Niles! On April 28, 1870, the Niles Junction was born, marking a historic event and the beginning of an era for our community. We are proud to celebrate this milestone and I was honored to commemorate this occasion and reflect with the community on the progress we have made since then.



Southbound I-680 Express Lane & Repaving Project Ground Breaking

As the Vice Chair of the Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC), I was honored to participate in the ground breaking ceremony for the Southbound Interstate 680 Express Lane and Pavement Rehabilitation Project, paving the way for a smoother, less congested ride for thousands of motorists.

The project will build a new express lane on I-680 between State Route 84 and Alcosta Boulevard in San Ramon, closing the gap between existing and in-process express lanes to ease the commute for southbound I-680 commuters. The project will also rehabilitate the pavement on this nine-mile stretch of I-680 through Sunol, Pleasanton, Dublin and San Ramon to provide a smoother ride for thousands of motorists.

“Today is an important step in completing an almost fifty-mile express lane corridor for people to travel on I-680 in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties and delivering on our promise to Alameda County voters. Express lanes are important for improving overall trip efficiency for everyone - including commuters, freight, and transit riders."

I was honored to present a commendation at “Bay Area Kala Utsavam,” a two-day festival of music and competition hosted by Shruthi Swara Laya (SSL) Music School as part of the celebration of Fremont's April is Arts, Culture and Creativity Month.

“This festival is all about Bay Area musicians, as the competitors, judges, and performers are all local artists. It is designed to be a platform for showcasing the creativity and talent of this next generation of artists. By focusing on young talent, the festival promotes a sense of community and support for the arts. It creates a space for young artists to connect, collaborate, and build a vibrant and supportive artistic community for years to come.”
