2022 Election

November 8, 2022 - General Municipal Election

The Millbrae City Council adopted a resolution calling for a General Municipal Election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, which voters in the City Council Districts 2 and 4 voted to elect a City Councilmember from each respective district for a four-year term. In addition, all Millbrae registered voters considered a Ballot Measure to increase the Transient Occupancy Tax by 2%.

The filing period for write-in candidates was September 12, 2022 through October 25, 2022. Write-in candidates must contact the City Clerk to obtain and file Write-In Nomination Papers, the Statements of Write-In Candidacy, and other required documents between these dates.

Measure N

On July 26, 2022, the City Council adopted an ordinance amending the Municipal Code Chapter 3.30, Uniform Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT or "Hotel Tax"), increasing the TOT rate from 12% to 14%, if approved by a majority vote of the Millbrae electorate at the 2022 General Municipal Election.

The following ballot question will appear as Measure N on the 2022 election ballot:

"To continue funding, for the City of Millbrae only, that cannot be taken by Sacramento, for general city services such as: repairing potholes/streets; maintaining neighborhood/downtown police patrols; improving recreation programs/parks; attracting new businesses; and enhancing disaster response; shall a measure increasing by 2% the City of Millbrae's existing transient occupancy tax charged to hotel and lodging guests until ended by voters, providing an additional $1,500,000 annually, with citizens' oversight, independent audits, be adopted?"

Measure N Facts:

  • If Measure N is approved by the voters, the transient occupancy tax paid by visitors staying in Millbrae hotels and other short-term lodgings will be increased by 2% to help pay for the local services visitors use while staying in Millbrae.
  • The funds generated by Measure N will be controlled by Millbrae and used for local needs. The money cannot be taken by the state.
  • Measure N will provide additional funding that Millbrae needs to continue to keep its neighborhoods safe from crime and fire, and make our community a place where families want to live and put down roots.
  • Measure N will include citizens' oversight and independent audits.

I am a 20-year resident of Millbrae District 2 and a mother of two children attending the Millbrae public school system. I am an active member of the Lomita Park Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and an advocate of the Millbrae School District and City Council.

I am passionate about making sure my neighbors' voices are heard, that concrete actions are taken to address their concerns, and helping all Millbrae residents and businesses thrive.

Together, let us fix our water infrastructure and storm drains to prevent flooding, repair our streets, celebrate and create equity within our diverse community, increase access to city resources for all residents and improve transparency between local government and the people.

Working for organizations such as St. Anthony's Dining Room and Meals on Wheels, I have dedicated my career to helping communities access basic resources. I am an adept communicator accomplished in working with individuals from diverse backgrounds across the community, local government, and small businesses. Additionally, I have experience in disaster resilience, community organizing, and working with the homeless population.
