In 2010, Wilma Chan was re-elected to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors with 56.71% of the vote to overcome three opponents and win the election in the June primary. Our deepest thanks goes out to all of her supporters who donated, phoned, walked precincts, put up lawn signs and provided the strong organization to make this win possible. We could not have won 145 out of 146 precincts without you.
Alameda County Supervisor Chan represents District 3, which includes the cities of Alameda, San Leandro, parts of Oakland including Chinatown, Jack London and Fruitvale & San Antonio neighborhoods, and the unincorporated community of San Lorenzo. She is currently the Chair of Health Committee and is a member of the County’s Personnel, Administrative, and Legislative Committee, Budget Committee, and Unincorporated Services Committee.
Since taking office in January 2011, Supervisor Chan has led several key policy and community based initiatives including:
– Leading Alameda County to become the first county in the nation to commit to connecting all eligible children to health care coverage
– Developing the “Human Impact Budget” to address the impact of state budget cuts to the county’s most vulnerable populations including securing a $300,000 grant from the California Endowment
– Working with residents to strengthen their communities through initiatives like the Adopt-A-School program to connect schools, businesses, organizations, and individuals to support local students.
