Protecting Our Environment


I am deeply committed to protecting our environment and proud to live in Hayward, where our city government has taken extensive measures to “think globally and act locally.” Hayward is a leader in tackling the climate crisis with our switch to 100% renewable energy sources, installation of the solar array at our wastewater treatment facility and our new state-of-the-art, energy-efficient downtown City Library. I will stay committed to keeping Hayward at the forefront of climate policy innovation.

Environmental Justice

I will also continue the important progress Hayward has begun toward environmental justice, making sure we are minimizing exposure to pollution for all residents, addressing the inadequate access to healthy food in some neighborhoods, and ensuring that City funds for neighborhood improvements are distributed equitably, so we can all stay healthy and safe, and feel proud of where we live.
