Organizer

Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan

Alameda County Supervisor Chan represents District 3, which includes the cities of Alameda, San Leandro, and Oakland’s Chinatown, Jack London, Fruitvale and San Antonio neighborhoods. District 3 also includes the unincorporated communities of San Lorenzo, Hayward Acres and a portion of Ashland. Supervisor Chan is currently Chair of the Health Committee and the ALL IN Steering Committee, and a member of the County’s Personnel/Administration/Legislation (PAL) Committee, Budget Workgroup, Unincorporated Services Committee, and the Ad Hoc Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights.

Supervisor Chan has been a strong advocate for children and families for over 40 years. From 2000-2006, Ms. Chan served in the California State Assembly where she became the first woman and Asian American to be Majority Leader. In the Assembly, Ms. Chan authored several groundbreaking bills, including one that implemented a no-lead standard in drinking water pipes and fixtures, and another that made California the first state to ban toxic flame retardants. In February 2016, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control announced that Ms. Chan's legislation had resulted in a 39% decline in the level of flame-retardants absorbed into women's breast milk since her bill was enacted in 2006.

Supervisor Chan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Wellesley College and a Master of Arts degree in Education Policy & Administration from Stanford University. She has two grown children and one grandchild.
