Pleasanton City Council District 3
I have held many leadership roles during my volunteer career. I was a founding member of the Pleasanton PTA Council. I organized the first Health and Wellness PTA committee, which led to serving eight years on the California State PTA’s Board of Managers, and the California Department of Education task forces, including the Environmental Literacy task force. Focusing on career technical education, I served as the Tri-Valley ROP’s PUSD Board Member representative. I have always had a particular focus on adolescent wellness and mental health.
I am a Bay Area native born in Oakland and lived in Berkeley before my parents moved us to Pleasanton in 1969. I attended Foothill High School and was elected Senior class President. My children also attended Pleasanton schools. Kindergarten through high school. I am your hometown choice for the city council.
Since 2007, I have been employed by Alameda County Health Care Services Agency and have worked on many impactful projects. My work in public health has allowed me to work with cities, community-based organizations, unincorporated neighborhoods, law enforcement, libraries, the medical community, the County’s Emergency Medical Services Agency, and school districts county-wide to listen, lead, plan, implement and collaborate. I am currently a program and communications manager in the office of the Health Care Services Agency Director. It is a privilege and honor to serve the people of Alameda County. Being part of a large public agency that is the safety net for its residents has taught me so much about our human condition and community resilience.
Jamie’s experience and advice as a school board member has been very helpful to my work in the Senate.Steve Glazer

“Jamie Yee, running for City Council for the first time after three terms on the Pleasanton Unified School District Board of Trustees (2008-20), brings a level of experience with government finance, policy work, labor negotiations, broad stakeholder engagement and representative decision-making unmatched in this campaign.
But beyond that track record, Yee has stepped forward with an inspired council candidacy. When we chose not to endorse Yee’s reelection to PUSD two years ago, part of our reasoning was that her mindset on the board seemed stagnant. She appears reinvigorated with this campaign to serve on the council for the city she grew up in.
You need look no further than her strong performance at our forum. Her positions on workforce housing, water reliability in the face of PFAS and calling attention to the stark turnover rate at the top of the city administration in the past two years were just a few of the moments that stood out to us. Her day job working for the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency would add key public health experience to the City Council as well.”
“Yee served three terms on the Pleasanton School Board, from 2008-20, is a member of the city’s Civic Arts Commission and has worked for the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency for 15 years mostly in community relations and program management posts.
While she expresses concern about cities losing local control on housing planning, she says those are policy issues to be worked out through representatives in the Legislature, not the courts. She’s right. Like Wallace, she thinks the skate park expenditure is unwise, especially during this time of financial uncertainty and with the city facing the costly water problem that must be addressed.
District 3 straddles Interstate 680 in the southern section of the city. In addition to Testa, the incumbent, there’s a third candidate in the race, Joel Liu, an electrical engineer who serves on the city’s Committee on Energy and the Environment. His positions are similar to Yee’s, but he doesn’t have her elective-office experience.”
