This information is provided by the candidate

Clark Williams is a social worker and non-profit executive management consultant with twenty years of experience working to improve the quality of life for families and communities throughout Silicon Valley.

A product of a large, hard-working, farm family, Clark maintains a core set of mainstream values that have always guided his personal and professional choices. Responsibility, integrity, honesty, generosity and fairness are not just election-year buzz words -- these are fundamental values instilled in Clark at an early age.

Clark has worked hard to contribute to his community. After earning a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin -- Eau Claire, Clark earned a master's degree from the prestigious New York University School of Social Work. During the past fifteen years, Clark has worked as a clinical social worker, as a chief executive officer of a women's healthcare non-profit organization and as a healthcare program manager with the Santa Clara County Public Health Department.

In addition to Clark's many appointed or elected public service roles, he has been an active member of dozens of local non-profit organizations and associations - including service on the Board of the Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits.

In 2006, Clark ran for an open seat on the San Jose City Council and narrowly missed the runoff election by just 49 votes out of 22,000 cast.

Clark lives in the north Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose with his longtime partner, James Moore, and their four-year-old daughter, Caroline.
