"Francisco Zermeño is a leader that Hayward can be proud of. He has put politics aside to deliver real results for our city to stand up for working families, champion our community's rich culture and diversity, and bring bold solutions to address our housing and traffic challenges. As a professor and Council Member, Francisco's legacy of public service and supporting our youth is unmatched --

his commitment to seeing Hayward's students succeed has helped foster the next generation of Hayward's leaders. I'm endorsing Francisco because he is passionate about Hayward, and he has the experience and the commitment to ensure that Hayward remains a place for everyone."

"Mr. J Francisco C is a competent person of integrity and wisdom that keeps his word. He is one of the few politicians that is humble and I can assure you will do the most in his power to do the best for Hayward. He is a person that treats everyone with equity across the board and has diligence to guide the heart of the bay. I feel we can all connect with him and that he connects with us in some aspect in terms of community, education, safety, and budget expertise. Mr. Zermeño has diversity and expresses it among the community whereever he is present; whether it is as a politician, educator, parent, professional, and community organizer.
VOTE for Francisco Zermeño on November 3!"

"Family and friends in Hayward I encourage you to vote for Francisco Zermeño. In the early 80's he was my Spanish professor at Chabot college as well as a mentor. All the years I have known him, Francisco Zermeño, has been a strong supporter and advocate for our youths and education as well as working how to improve Hayward. Having been elected twice as a council member for the city of Hayward, he will continue his dedication to continue his work for the city of Hayward. Vote for Francisco Zermeño!"
