It’s time to get to work!


Celina is an active community volunteer and co-founder of San Leandro for Accountability, Transparency, and Equity (SLATE)—a local organization successfully advocated for community oversight of the San Leandro Police Department.

Celina has served as a member of the City of San Leandro’s Community Advisory Budget Task Force and knows first-hand how to balance San Leandro’s budget and ensure that it equitably reflects the needs of our community. She is also an Associate on the Alameda Democratic Central Committee, where she has introduced and supported resolutions for LGBTQ+ rights and public safety reform.

Celina is a former high school English teacher and is currently working as a legal intern with the ACLU of Northern California while pursuing her law degree at UC Hastings, where she is concentrating in social justice lawyering. She is the granddaughter of working-class Portuguese immigrants and veterans who worked blue-collar factory jobs in San Leandro, and the daughter of a public school teacher and church choir director.

Celina lives in District 1 with her spouse, an elementary school teacher, and two cats. If elected, Celina would be the first LGBTQ+ woman elected to San Leandro City Council.

In San Leandro, all City Council members are elected at large (by all San Leandro residents) to represent the district where they live. District 1 extends from Bay-o-Vista to the San Leandro BART Station, also encompassing Old San Leandro, Estudillo Estates, and Assumption Parish. District 1 is the home of the San Leandro History Museum, Bancroft Middle School, McKinley Elementary School, Memorial Park and the Veterans Memorial Building, the San Leandro Hospital, dozens of thriving businesses in the Downtown—and more.
