Candidate for Mayor of Hayward
Michael Sweeney (unopposed)
Four years ago I pledged to focus on involving citizens in decision-making about the issues that affect our daily lives; making public safety the top priority; "cleaning up and greening up" Hayward. We have begun to see progress in these areas.
Hayward's Neighborhood Partnership Program now brings City Hall out into our neighborhoods on a regular basis. We listen and work with residents, who tell us about what works and what doesn't work in their neighborhoods, to solve problems. California did not balance its budget and cut public safety.
In Hayward, we balanced our budget, added nine more police officers and are beginning a gang injunction program to break up gangs. We organized the Keep Hayward Clean and Green Task Force. This group of everyday Hayward residents picks up trash, paints out graffiti and leads by example.
Hayward also enacted its first green building ordinance and climate action plan. Working together, we are solving problems that affect the quality of life for everyone who lives and works in Hayward. We're working to protect jobs and businesses, and creating a brighter future.
There's more work to be done. I'm Mayor Mike Sweeney. I'd appreciate your support.
