HelenMarie “Cookie” Gordon for Vallejo City Council, District 6

For over 30 plus years, I work various careers such as retail sales to human services including working with programs that help provide support to the youth and their families. I am blessed and grateful to also serve as a Community Advocate/Organizer for people in all walks of life. My ongoing community advocacy demonstrates the commitment, passion and experience for serving the constituents of District 6. From my dedicated involvement with our public schools, improving transportation routes, requesting wheelchair cuts to sidewalks or standing up for the health of our neighborhood against a cement plant, my voice and heart serves the needs of District 6.

My willingness to be part of the solution represents the leadership needed to achieve common ground in Vallejo. I will work with City of Vallejo and community leaders to build a positive legacy for our District 6 constituents. My goals include: 1) investing in our neighborhoods with economic development to support our children, families and businesses with healthy, sustainable solutions; 2) partnerships with education, healthcare and transportation agencies to create a thriving environment for District 6 residents to live their best life.
