Let's Make A Difference, Together.

Dear Neighbor,

 

I've called San Ramon my home for over 40 years — I was a local kid who grew up in San Ramon, graduated from Cal High, and stayed local for college at U.C. Berkeley. I then became a physician and came back to this city to raise my family.

Many of you may feel San Ramon is two different cities divided by Alcosta Blvd. I'm deeply rooted in our community & have an unparalleled understanding of the old and the new communities of San Ramon. As a neighbor, coach, former PTA board member, and current member of the Library Advisory Committee & San Ramon Valley Education Foundation Board, I have gotten to know the individuals who comprise the diverse fabric of our community.

 

Transitioning out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to foster an environment that prioritizes the wellbeing of its residents through public safety & health, smart growth balanced with open space, economic development and an inclusive community. I don't have any intention to climb the political ladder — my passion is simple: to serve and better our great city.

Join us, and let's make a difference, together

Dr. Dinesh
