Integrity, accountability, and compassion are the principles that guide me.

As Mayor, I will use my experience as your city council member and a community leader to fight for our values and deliver quality services important to improving our quality of life.


Emily will put her experience to work for you

Affordable Housing

Emily supports building more affordable workforce housing in Union City and linking jobs and housing near transit.

Public Safety

To ensure public safety, Emily supports expanding the number of police officers, expanding community-based policing, and partnering with our schools to prevent youth violence.

Parks & Open Spaces

Emily supports continued funding for park improvements and the protection of our open spaces.

Union City’s Finances

Emily’s background in business and her years on the council give her an understanding of the city’s budget and what needs to be done to maintain the integrity of Union City’s finances, including maintaining a balanced budget and providing public services residents deserve.

Collaborative Solutions
for the Unhoused

To combat homelessness, Emily supported funding for a new homelessness coordinator and believes we need to establish a navigation center for the unhoused, connecting them to services.

Economic Development & Infrastructure

Emily has been a leader in expanding economic development, providing incentives to attract new businesses, and creating jobs.  She also supports investments in Union City’s infrastructure to provide safe and convenient travel by car, transit, bicycle, and walking.
