Dear Millbrae Neighbor:

As parents of young children, my husband and I looked for the perfect place to raise a family. We found it right here in Millbrae.

I am running for City Council because I want to give something back to the city that has given our family so much.

This is an exciting time for Millbrae. The arrival of BART presents both challenges -- to protect our small town qualities -- and opportunities -- to enhance our economic and tax base to our advantage. We need experienced leadership with vision to make sure BART works well for Millbrae.

I am the Chair of the San Mateo County Planning Commission. During my six years serving on the Planning Commission, I led the planning of the area impacted by the successful Colma BART station. I also crafted an ordinance that made childcare more available, and helped to preserve open space for our enjoyment.

I know how to work with our diverse community. Last year, I served as the Chair of the Millbrae 50th Anniversary Committee. Our committee brought thousands of local residents together in a yearlong celebration of our city. Funded by voluntary contributions, our committee also donated new exercise equipment to our senior center and left a legacy of gifts and a sculpture for our civic center.

During the past months, I have campaigned door to door throughout Millbrae. I have learned a tremendous amount listening to your concerns and opinions. I will serve as I have campaigned -- reaching out to all segments of our community, seeking your ideas.

I am committed to making Millbrae an even better place for all our residents.

This is my pledge to you. I would appreciate your vote.

Sincerely,

Nadia Holober

My Priorities For Millbrae Are:

Make BART work for Millbrae.

Millbrae must focus on parking controls and traffic routing to keep out-of-town commuters from congesting our neighborhoods. I'll fight for better bus services to make BART convenient for Millbrae residents to use.

Better recreation for teens & seniors.

Our Recreation Center should have extended hours on weekends with innovative programs that appeal to teens. We should expand after-school offerings. Our seniors deserve enhanced activities and transportation assistance.

Revitalize our shopping district.

Downtown Millbrae needs a better mix of stores and services. When we shop Millbrae, we keep our tax dollars here to pay for police, fire fighters, parks and other vital city services.

Preserve our small town qualities.

I'll demand the highest standard of public safety for our residents. New development should harmonize with surrounding neighborhoods. Together, we'll keep Millbrae a great place to live and raise a family.
