Corina Lopez Enters the Field for District 5 City Council Seat

Corina Lopez - photo taken at Taste of San Leandro in April 2009 Corina Lopez filed paperwork today to become the third candidate for San Leandro's District 5 City Council seat, currently held by Bill Stephens. Stephens cannot run for re-election because of term limits imposed in 1974. Lopez will face Recreation and Parks Commissioner Peggy Combs and School Board Trustee Pauline Cutter.

Lopez, together with her husband, run a small technology consulting company called Pinnacle Vista Technology. She is also current president of the Best Manor Homeowners Association and is working with Rene Mendieta to form a new Latino Business Council.

In July 2009, Lopez was appointed as an At-Large member of the Human Services Commission.

The San Leandro City Council will decide in January 2010 whether the election will be in June 2010 or in November 2010.

Do you know who it was that appointed her to the Human Services Commission?

The Mayor appoints the At-Large members. All appointments must be approved by the City Council, but by the time they make it to an agenda, appointments are almost always approved unanimously.

The Human Services Commission has nine members consisting of six members from each City Council district, and three At-Large members. Each City Council member appoints a member and the Mayor appoints the three At-Large members.
