Eileen McDonald was recently sworn in at the Alameda County Office of Education for a third term. Eileen represents Fremont and Newark at the county level, as a Trustee for Area 7 on the Alameda County Board of Education. The election was held in June; but, since she ran unopposed, her name did not appear on the ballot.

McDonald served thirteen years on the Newark Unified Board of Education and currently eight years on the Alameda County Board of Education.

"The past eight years, serving on the county board, has given me the opportunity to shine the spotlight on Fremont and Newark. In 2010, the Alameda County Teacher of the Year was Fremont teacher, Livia Thomas and in 2011, Newark teacher Tom Collett went on to win California Teacher of the Year," said McDonald.

"We were often forgotten here in South Alameda County, but no longer." She added, "It puts a huge smile on my face that my advocacy for our communities now has everyone's full attention!"
