"Most important, he has mastered the details of the city’s finances, indeed better than his two opponents who currently sit on the council, Mayor Dave Hudson, who has served on the council for 25 years, and Councilwoman Sabina Zafar, who is finishing her first term on the council.

Govindarao’s executive-management experience has shaped his thoughtful approach to how the city should recruit for a city manager in a balanced and even-handed way that allows for some community input but recognizes the council is ultimately responsible for the choice."

"I know Dr. Dinesh through the 21-22 Leadership SRV program. He is an effective leader in our class through his positive connection with others and collaborative style when discussing issues and problem solving. Dinesh engaged with the topics studied such as creating healthy communities, education and how to improve the lives of other residents. His experience and listening skills were respected among members of the city. I endorse him for Mayor of San Ramon and know that the community will be well served by his leadership!"
