Castro Valley Matters organizes its work and engagement in the community through five committees.
The Local Governance Committee works toward representative, democratic and accountable local governance, advocating for an elected Municipal Advisory Council and other ways to increase public participation and accountable governance in our unincorporated community. Contact Carey Sanchez Para at firstname.lastname@example.org or Michael Kusiak at email@example.com.
CVM’s Editorial Committee supports our social media channels, website, e-newsletter. Help is needed writing and editing original blog posts, maintaining the membership database, working on the back end of the website, and much more. Contact Becky Stanek-Rykoff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CVM’s Placemaking Committee seeks to inspire and promote community pride and a sense of place, through public art, murals, a downtown plaza, and those things that make Castro Valley a desirable place to live, with its own distinct identity. Contact Sue Ralston at email@example.com.
The Membership Committee engages in activities to increase awareness of the efforts of CVM and to promote membership and engagement. Contact Peter Rosen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Events Committee is the backbone of our community engagement. It promotes and participates in local events that raise the visibility of CVM in the community, such as the Rodeo Parade, Food Trucks, Fall Festival, and more. Contact Jim Herron at email@example.com.
