A Life of Service

A longstanding community leader and public servant, Lena Tam is running for Alameda County Supervisor to bring proven and effective leadership to the people of Alameda, Oakland, San Leandro and Ashland. She will be on District 3 ballots in the November election, having finished strong in the June primary.

Lena has served as Vice Mayor of the City of Alameda, President of the City of Alameda Health Care Board and Chair of the Alameda County Planning Board. In her professional career, she is the Manager of the Water Planning Department at the East Bay Municipal Utility District, where she has worked for more than 30 years. She understands the complexities of how local and county governments interface with regional service providers; she’s a healthcare expert; and she’s ready to carry on the incredible legacy of Supervisor Wilma Chan.

Rooted in Alameda County

Lena, the child of two first-generation immigrants, was raised in the City of Alameda. She graduated from Alameda High School before pursuing degrees from UC Berkeley (BS in Environmental and Civil Engineering) and the University of San Francisco (Masters of Public Administration). A resident of District 3 for more than 50 years, she currently lives in the City of Alameda and works in Oakland.
