Walk Piece Post Card #1 Adam Loraine (4×6 in) (2880 × 1920 px) (5).png

San Mateo is at a crossroads: we must recover economically from the pandemic, and plan for affordable housing and climate resilience. We need experienced leadership with strong community ties, to provide institutional knowledge and forward momentum to our Council. I grew up in San Mateo. In our neighborhood associations and as a City Commissioner, I've been a leading community voice on sustainability and infrastructure priorities.
I'm ready to lead on City Council. I helped shape the City’s 20-year policy vision, serving as Vice Chair on our General Plan Subcommittee. As a lifelong environmental advocate and Sustainability and Infrastructure Commissioner, I've supported billions of dollars of citywide infrastructure projects benefiting San Mateans. I’ve walked every block and listened to thousands of Beresford Hillsdale neighbors; I pledge to lead by listening.

We deserve qualified leaders who “walk the walk” and will be accountable to all in our diverse District 5.
