New Energy for Hayward's Future
I have been representing the citizens of Hayward for one year now and I very much enjoy working on your behalf. I thought it was time to take a look back on what I have been able to accomplish in this first year.
During the campaign I asked you to join with me to achieve 5 goals. Here is what we've done so far.
Make Hayward Safer
- Eliminated the red light camera program and supported changes to the Police Patrol Plan to improve safety.
- Implemented a moratorium on internet gambling businesses and in the process of seeking permanent closure of existing ones.
- Supported city-wide installation of LED bulbs in existing street lights to reduce costs and make street lighting brighter.
Bringing More Jobs & Shopping to Hayward
- Adopted a 5-year strategic plan to develop the economy and tax base in Hayward.
- Adopted a pilot program to allow Hayward restaurants to have Happy Hour which improves revenue.
- Worked with downtown businesses to minimize the impact of the Route 238 improvements and responded to requests to increase store-front parking.
Make Hayward More Attractive
- Substantially reduced dumping on public property in the City.
- Worked side-by-side along with our Keep Hayward Clean and Green Volunteers and with my family to reduce litter in Hayward.
- Continued to support the mural program and worked to bring it further south of the downtown.
- Implemented a county-wide plastic bag ban.
Put Hayward on a Sustainable Path
- Reduced the structural budget gap through negotiations with our unions.
- Saved Hayward $ by restructuring Hayward Water System bonds.
- Created a source of funding for neighborhood improvements near South Hayward BART.
- Worked to fully identify all of Hayward's "unfunded liabilities" and began the process of funding them over time.
Make Hayward More Youth Friendly
- Supported increasing the number of HUSD schools where the Hayward Library provides free after school homework help.
- Supported the development of plans for a new library and community learning center.
- Protected senior-only mobile home parks to maintain lower-cost options for seniors.
I work for you, the citizens of Hayward. Feel free to contact me if you need assistance. I am always happy to meet with the people of our great city!
