My name is Sameera Rajwade.
I am a 21 year old, non-Binary, first-generation Indian American.
I am proud to call San Ramon home.
I moved to Windermere when I was 3, attended Coyote Creek Elementary School and Gale Ranch Middle School, and graduated from
Dougherty Valley in 2017.
While attending American University, I worked as a political journalist. I realized I wanted to devote time to advocacy work, so for the past few years, I have been a community organizer in San Ramon and the Bay Area.
My campaign is historic.
I will advocate for San Ramon.
I would be the first non-binary city council member ever elected in America. This is an honor and a reminder of how much I owe to Queer activists who have come before me. I would also be the youngest city council member ever elected in California.
I was one of the main organizers of the Black Lives Matter Protest in San Ramon this June. I decided to run after the march as the number of people who came out to protest is why I believe in San Ramon. As a community organizer, I understand how to listen and advocate for others. I am confident that
my experience, excitement and energy will make me an effective City Council Member. It is time we reinvest in what makes San Ramon such a beautiful city.
I will fight for San Ramon families, our open spaces, and the wellness of our community.
