“I am going to die happy in Hayward, since happiness is Hayward living, as a resident, and it is a matter of collaborating, partnering, associating and working together. As an educator working with education foundations and educators is natural, and as a businessman collaborating with the chamber of commerce is important for a Strong Local Economy. I also like to work with youngsters, because we don’t do enough for the youth – and am an advisor to the Hayward Youth Commission listening to their needs, and what needs to be done.” Thank you. Hayward On!
