My Top 3 Priorities

  • Keep the service rates low
  • Improved customer service
  • Modernize equipment



Chike Udemezue, a community volunteer, organizer, analyst and author has served on many committees, commission and board of directors in the nonprofit, public and government sectors. At the present, he serves on the Recreation and Parks Commission of the San Leandro City Council. He also serves on the John Muir Middle School Site Council and on the LCAP Parent Advisory Committee of the San Leandro Unified School District. He brings his experience of civil service into his community activities with the intent of providing first class service to the district which in turn highlight the type of delivery the residents have come to expect. His experience of serving as a steward for the SEIU Local 1000 will help him fight for the working class families and all people in the San Leandro, Castro Valley, Ashland, San Lorenzo and Fairview areas of the Alameda County.


Chike is a professionally qualified accountant that subsequently retrained in the people side of the enterprise. Under private sponsorship, he studied the impact of ethical behavior on career development for his doctoral research. His research has facilitated his track record of writing and publishing in accounting, labor market, organizational development and social change. Dr. Udemezue will be honored to have your endorsement and vote in the November 8, 2016 general election. Thank you.

The need for a positive social change is inevitable in our diverse district; I will bring a new energy to the board. My first job is to listen to you and through my decades of volunteering in the community, I’ve learned to respect and work with people. I am committed to picking up the recycling bins every week, providing better customer service while keeping the costs down. With my education, skills and experience, I'll streamline the district’s budget while maintaining efficiency. Over the years, I’ve served on many nonprofit boards, interceded between workers and management in the service industries, balanced budgets, prepared taxes, analyzed proposals and delivered value. We need to continue modernizing our equipment for a more efficient, environmentally clean and friendly operation. I will push for the modernization while controlling costs. Your vote for a progressive voice that will fight for all people in our diverse community with working class families is important. As a progressive democrat, I’ll work with everyone to provide you with the best possible service; so when you cast your ballot – please vote for me; let’s improve service and keep the rates down.
