Kenneth Pon, Candidate for City Councilmember
Ken Pon says, "My vision is to make San Leandro the place where our millennial children can, and will come back to live in modern housing where they commute to their local jobs by walking, bicycling, “mopeding”, or taking local transit, and take advantage of the local entertainment venues springing up in town!"
Kenneth Pon has lived, worked, and played in San Leandro for the past 37 years. Being a long time resident has provided him with an educated view on the City’s challenges of projected budget deficits, housing shortages, traffic congestion, and neighborhood traffic calming.
He joined and lead the Dads Club, PTA, United Parents, T-Ball and Soccer Little Leagues, Chamber of Commerce, a homeowners association, the Downtown Association, the Asian Community Cultural Association, the San Leandro Breakfast Club, the Wa Sung Community Service Club, the local Rotary Club, the Asian Pacific Caucus, and the San Leandro Democratic Club.
Ken championed the School District's first bond measure in 40 years, and the City’s 2000 General Plan. He is currently serving his second year as Chair of the City’s Planning Commission. He served 8 years as Trustee and one year as President, on the San Leandro Unified School District Board of Trustees. Ken is still active in many of these organizations, demonstrating that community service is a priority for him in San Leandro.
