He is an Ethnic Studies professor at Cal State East Bay and a proud union member of the California Faculty Association. He serves as vice-chair of the Alameda County Public Health Commission, guiding our county on health initiatives for safe and vibrant neighborhoods. Néstor is a life-long East Bay resident and proud Hayward resident. He will fight to bring bold, innovative, and proactive leadership to City Hall. Néstor is committed to working in partnership with the community and will serve Hayward with integrity and humility.
