    About Brenda

Why I am running for office


I have lived in Vallejo for the past 25+ years and watched this amazing city slowly go into disrepair.  As an active member of our community, I see and believe Vallejo is the uncut gem of the bay area. We have the most amazing assets to build up; and most importantly, the best people.  We need to unify, work together, engage with all our local residents to help bring this city back to a place where we feel safe and are proud to call Vallejo our home. 

What does a City Council Member do?

It is an elected group of 6, 1 from each district working with the mayor to create policies to govern their districts.  To serve the needs of the people who live and work there.  They monitor city agencies like the police and public works departments to ensure they are serving their community, review land usage within the city, decide how best to grow and develop the city properties, attend meetings, meet with the public to discuss issues.

The council must have a majority vote to move anything forward or make changes.  We must be open, understand, compromise and give clear direction to our city agencies and to the citizens of Vallejo.

My thoughts on Vallejo

We need to get back to our foundation.  Currently, we are building upon failed projects, policies and directives.  Vallejo needs to focus on safety, unifying and involvement.  So how do we get there?

  • Work with our City Manager, Human Resources, Public Works and the Finance departments to address current concerns and find potential solutions and ways of moving forward .

  • Get our residents involved.

  • Work with the non-profit services to come together and provide their special programs though a shared avenue. So, everyone, both the non-profits and the people have the best access to all programs. This will truly benefit our youth, elderly, homeless and everyone in our community.
