My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensure to bring more transparency and inclusion in our local government – so you know where your tax dollars are being spent.
  • Use my experience as a working parent in Silicon Valley to spearhead solving commute issues – so you can have a better work/life balance, spending less time on the road and more time with your family and friends.
  • Be an advocate for better and safe youth facilities – so our teenagers don’t have to hangout in parking lots.

Sabina is a successful business executive who works with top technology companies. She comes from a family of strong public servants and moved to San Ramon to give her two children an excellent education with strong community values. She prides herself in living in San Ramon because of its safe communities, diverse neighborhoods, and excellent public schools. Sabina understands that while there is much to be proud of, there are many things the City Council can do to improve quality of life for you while protecting your tax dollars.

On the City Council, Sabina will use her experience in the tech sector to help bring new jobs we need and help the small businesses we have to grow, thrive, and create jobs locally so the city can stop pulling money out of its reserve funds. She will also work to reduce our local traffic congestion and your commute by creating more amenities in San Ramon instead of other cities. Finally, she will provide top-notch constituent services so your problems are heard and acted upon quickly and efficiently, and plan for San Ramon’s future as we grow and thrive while protecting our neighborhoods and community. She also wants to bring our local government to the 21st century with live updates and streamlining the avenues in which residents can interact with their leaders.

Sabina is a leader in our community and serves on the City of San Ramon Transportation Advisory Committee and is a member of the Dougherty Valley/San Ramon Rotary, and has been an active member of the PTA. She is running for City Council to continue her successes in the community to lead San Ramon in the future.
