DUBLIN, CA — Two city of Dublin councilmembers announced this week their intention to run for a seat on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.

Mayor David Haubert and Vice Mayor Melissa Hernandez each declared — in separate announcements — they will enter the 2020 race to replace retiring Supervisor Scott Haggerty, whose four-year term ends January 2021.

Haggerty serves District 1, which includes the cities of Dublin and Livermore; most of the city of Fremont; a portion of the unincorporated community of Sunol; and most of the unincorporated area of the Livermore-Amador Valley.

Haubert made his announcement Monday via his Facebook page, Haubert4Supervisor. "The residents of Alameda County District 1 deserve the best possible county supervisor to replace retiring Supervisor Scott Haggerty. That's why after 18 years of local public service I've decided to run for this open seat," he wrote.

Haubert said in his announcement that he wants to improve East Bay transportation, bring jobs closer to home and keep communities safe.

Hernandez sent out her announcement Thursday via email. "I am running for supervisor to offer a fresh community and neighborhood perspective and deliver results for the families of Dublin, Fremont, Livermore, and East Alameda County," she wrote. Hernandez has launched a campaign website,

In her announcement, Hernandez said she wants to help working families move into the middle class, protect social services for veterans and the elderly, create more affordable housing, and improve transportation and public safety.

Currents terms on the Dublin City Council expire in December 2020 for both Haubert and Hernandez.
