I was appointed by the Alameda Board of Supervisors to the East County Board of Zoning Adjustments in 2006, and I am the public member and past chairperson of the Alameda County Local Agency Formation Commission. I serve on the board of Innovation Tri-Valley Leadership Group and chair its housing, infrastructure and transportation committee.
