Mark Salinas will Run for Mayor of Hayward


Hayward City Council Member Mark Salinas

will Run for Mayor of Hayward


I am happy to announce that I am running for Mayor of Hayward and the campaign starts today.  Mark your calendars now for Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Born at St. Rose Hospital and raised in the Schafer Park Neighborhood, I’ve learned one indelible truth about our city: we’re resourceful and together we are committed to making Hayward better.  Today, neighborhoods are standing with each other and we’re looking straight ahead to the future.  We’re enthusiastic about our city’s growth, we’re hopeful for Hayward’s economic prospects, and what’s on the horizon is potentially our city’s best years.  We cannot miss this opportunity to elect a Mayor who is enthusiastic and motivated to make Hayward the best possible place for families.  I am that candidate.

Twice you have elected me to represent you and your neighborhood on the Hayward City Council.  I’m proud of what we’ve been able to do together.  Our community policing program has connected police officers to neighbors in meaningful ways and they truly protect all of us.  Voters passed a sales tax and today we’re renovating fire stations, repairing streets, and next year Hayward will open a  21st Century Library and Learning Center.  What I am most proud of is this,  while working with the school district’s food services department and multiple community organizations, we have successfully fed breakfast and lunch to thousands of kids free every summer at Let’s Do Lunch Hayward...and breakfast too.  This year we served our one millionth meal!  This work is supported by our neighborhoods and together we’re making Hayward better!

I am running for Mayor because Hayward needs a Mayor who represents what Hayward is today and who represents what Hayward can be in the future.  We need to plan for the next two generations and make their success not by accident but by purpose.  Hayward deserves a Mayor who will do whatever it takes to make our city the place for innovation, entrepreneurialism, and jobs.  Hayward is a city of families, and we deserve a Mayor who will ensure strong neighborhoods, safe neighborhoods, and neighborhoods where all families can plan to spend the rest of their lives.  Today we stand looking at the future with so many possibilities on the horizon.  We can’t let this opportunity with so many possibilities get away from us.  This is why I am running for Mayor of Hayward.

November is when Hayward families reflect on all of the things we are thankful for.  This Thanksgiving, I will be thinking about how thankful I am to have a loving family and for having the incredible opportunity to serve you and your neighbors.

Election Day is a year away. The success of the Mark Salinas for Mayor of Hayward campaign is based on your support and endorsement.  Will you take a moment and endorse me?
