I’m a Grassroots Candidate Who Believes That Every Individual’s Voice Can Make a Difference For The Future
Mission for Hayward
Some people have planks... I have plans. My plans focus on a hierarchy of needs that every city and its citizens are entitled to.
Fully replace roads (not just adding sealant to cracks).
Add lighting for safety.
Add speed bumps and deterrents to keep neighborhoods (including young children and pets) safe.
More navigation centers in Hayward so that our city is not inundated with additional homeless
Coordination across services to ensure basic health and well-being needs are met (mental health services, health care, etc.
Crisis Response Unit and tracking to reduce revolving door into acute psych facilities such as John George which don’t adequately address the long-term issues.
Over the years we’ve lost three movie theaters two bowling alleys and a Skating rink. I want to bring back that family connection to Hayward.
I want to establish a bowling Alley or Skating rink ( or a combination of both) back in Hayward again.
To give an example : After 80 years in Hayward Gillig one the largest bus manufacturers in the country left and moved to Livermore. Shortly after moving they hired 2000 new employees new jobs that could have helped Hayward.
Change city’s rule from 13% to 20%. Other Bay Area cities have already surpassed this threshold.
We as good Hayward leaders need to make this happen sooner not later for our residents.
City Leaders need to dictate the rules and not the developers.
Over the years we have lost family values and sense of unity in the community (history: more people working and commuting away from Hayward area; less time for family)
We lost entertainment venues for our city over the past ten years including full bowling alleys, movie theaters, skating rinks. What’s old is new again. We need to adapt to the changing times and find sources of recreation and entertainment that can bring all generations together. Round One is a start but not enough. Our young people have been in the digital age for so long we have lost our sense of family.
