Big Wins: Bay Area Fil Am Mayors!

– Congratulations to Mayors Juslyn Manalo and Gabriel Quinto –

This past December, many local municipalities re-organized their city councils. While this is a procedural occurrence, December 2017 brought great news and celebration for our local Fil Am community in the announcing of TWO Fil Am Mayors taking the helm of their respective city’s leadership and council, as Mayors.

LEAD Filipino would like to extend a huge congratulations to Daly City Mayor Juslyn Manalo and El Cerrito City Mayor Gabriel Quinto in their leadership posts as mayors of their cities. Mayor Manalo is the first Filipina American to serve as Daly City’s Mayor and Mayor Quinto is the first Filipino to serve as El Cerrito’s Mayor. We look forward to hearing of the policy, community/economic development and other exciting initiatives that they’ll lead in the coming year.
