Hi, I’m Lucy!

I’m running for Fremont Unified School District’s School Board Area 5 because our students deserve strong and representative leadership.

Growing up in Fremont, I was shaped by our incredibly vibrant and diverse community. I’m excited to add my voice as an FUSD alumnus and a daughter of immigrants to the school board and support our community.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our students, parents, and educators must have access to the resources they need to safely navigate remote education. Sheltering in place has not been easy. To ensure everyone’s unique needs are met, we must nurture open conversation between the community and the school district.

If my goals resonate with you, I need your help. Your vote and your voice is crucial, and I hope to earn your support. Together, we can build a school system that is inclusive and accessible to everyone.

My Priorities

As a school board trustee, I will focus my energy on the following initiatives:

Health and Safety
I will take a multi-pronged approach to continue to support our students, protect our teachers, and give our parents peace of mind that their children are safe but not falling behind.
Mental Health
I am committed to bringing the community together to create the mental health support systems that our students need and deserve, especially during these unusual and difficult times.
Community Accessibility and Transparency
I will lower barriers to individual involvement in school board decisions and fight for increased accountability and transparency at FUSD.
Diversity in Education
I will advocate for the formation of a committee to oversee the process of implementing actively diverse educational frameworks in our schools.

Ballots are out!

All registered voters in California will get a ballot by mail. Ballots were mailed on October 5. If you haven’t already, you can still register to vote up until October 19. Additionally, if you do need a ballot in a different language, Alameda County will mail (or e-mail) you a translated ballot by calling (510) 272-6973. Some polling locations will also have translated ballots available in Korean, Khmer, and Punjabi.

After filling out your ballot, make sure you sign the back of your envelope. Election officials will match this against the signature of your driver’s license or California ID. You can drop off your ballot at any USPS mailbox without any additional postage, at an Alameda County ballot drop box, or at any Alameda County polling location. One of the closest ballot drop boxes is located at Ohlone College Building 19 (43600 Mission Boulevard). All ballots must be postmarked or received at a drop box or polling location by November 3, 8 PM Pacific.

Lucy has impressed me with her ability to engage with all our Fremont stakeholders. As an alumnus of FUSD, she is truly the voice we need to educate our future generation.

About School Board Trustee Area 5

In mid-December of 2019, the Fremont Unified School Board transitioned to a by-trustee area election system. This meant that instead of voting at large, voters select only the trustee for their area. Area 5 is roughly represented by the Mission San Jose High School and Weibel Elementary School's attendance area. You can check which area you are in on the full map.

As a graduate of the FUSD school system, she is uniquely qualified to address the needs and challenges facing ALL of the students. We rarely find students from the community coming back to help improve the community.... Lucy will work tirelessly to empower all students to reach their full potential.
Monica Melville, former Co-President of Mission Possible Parent and Faculty Association (MPPFA)
