Hi Valued Supporter,

Picture I have been representing the citizens of Hayward for 18 months 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.  Below is what we've done so far.

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!
