Nominate A Local Hero and Save the Date

August 11, 2016

Every year, I have the honor of hosting my annual State of the 10th Senate District Address. In conjunction with this year's event, to be held on September 15th at Cal State East Bay, I will be giving out the 2016 Local Hero Awards, recognizing community leaders and organizations throughout the District.

As a constituent in our community, I am writing to you today to ask for your help in submitting nominations for these awards from the areas I represent:

Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, Fairview, Fremont, Hayward, Milpitas, Newark, San Jose, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Santa Clara, and Union City

The online nomination form can be found at:

These online nomination forms are due back by Thursday, August 18th at 5:00pm. I will review all nominations and choose awardees by the end of August. There is no limit to the number of nominations you can submit, as long as the nominations are submitted before 5:00pm on August 18th via my website or emailed to

Thank you so much for all that you do for our community. I look forward to reviewing all the wonderful nominees that you submit. I really appreciate your participation! And Save the Date!

It is an honor to serve you in the Senate.


Bob Wieckowski
Senator, 10th District
