Bill Pai For Alameda City Council 2022
WHAT I PROMISE TO STAND FOR
For Housing and Livable Neighborhoods
The City of Alameda is a special place in large part due to the character of its neighborhoods and the quality of life enjoyed by its residents. We need to come together to address the housing challenges facing our state and city in a way which preserves our quality of life, especially in our residential neighborhoods, our parks and our environment. Bill is committed to working with all stakeholders to facilitate growth and development fairly within the city, preserving our historical buildings and preventing traffic congestion from reaching unacceptable levels.
Increasing Public Safety
The 1st priority and responsibility of government is to provide a stable and secure environment where all residents feel safe and protected equally from crime. We should provide our police and fire departments with the support and resources they need to maintain order and safety as our city grows over the next several years and beyond. Bill also supports the use of new technologies, such as license plate readers, to enhance the reach of our public safety agencies as they deal with staffing challenges and an expanding mission as the city continues to grow.
Preparing for the Future
As a city on San Francisco Bay, Alameda needs to accelerate its preparation for the growing impacts of climate change. Efforts to do so will include modernizing our infrastructure to address rising sea levels, leveraging new technologies to reduce fossil fuel consumption and better managing traffic flow. The future also will involve building more housing to accommodate new workers hired at companies based in the Business Park, Alameda Point and the Northern Waterfront. Bill believes we can meet the challenges facing our city through coordinated planning and use of new tools to enhance the reach and impact of city agencies and all stakeholders.

Build housing at an exclusive Bay Area athletic club?
Article written by Sarah Ravani
For years, developers have seen opportunity in the Harbor Bay Club in Alameda, a sprawling athletic and health club on 9 acres where they wanted to add housing while scaling back the size of the facility.
But the residents of Bay Farm Island, where the club is located, have blocked attempts to redevelop the site, arguing that new housing would add to traffic and that they should have a say in the future of the privately owned club, which has 19 tennis courts, a pool and gym.

A native of Chicago’s South Side who attended the University of Chicago, I joined IBM upon graduation and spent several years selling information technology solutions and training to companies such as State Farm Insurance and John Deere.
I loved the Midwest and still do, but as the rise of the Internet began creating world-changing companies in Silicon Valley I decided to move to the Bay Area in 1997 to pursue opportunities here. I joined a pre-IPO Internet startup as Employee #17 and its first Director of Sales. The company went public in 2000.
I moved to Alameda’s main island that same year and quickly fell in love with this city. My wife Agnes and I found a house on Bay Farm Island in 2001 and have lived here ever since. Our son Nelson has gone through the City’s public school system and graduated from Alameda High School in June 2022. I believe the City of Alameda has excellent schools and am committed to helping it maintain its high standards for educating our children.
