Zarina Kiziloglu: Pleasanton City Council candidate and everyday hero

Original post made by Alma K., Dublin, on Oct 29, 2020

I now live in Dublin, but a couple of years ago, I was a Pleasanton resident and was going through a very difficult situation, as I had lost my primary job and could not afford my rent, losing my apartment. I ended up spending my days at a local gym/community center in Pleasanton, applying for jobs and trying to figure out my housing situation when, one day, this lady approached me and introduced herself as Zarina Kiziloglu and said she had served on the Pleasanton Housing Commission. She asked me about my situation and immediately provided contact information for an organization that could help. She got the ball rolling and kept in touch with me until my application was processed/approved. Zarina Kiziloglu reached out to me when I was feeling lost and confused, offering me the guidance and resources I so direly needed, and most importantly, she made a promise to do whatever she could to help, and she kept her promise. She is a kind, caring, and compassionate individual who works tirelessly for everyone she represents. She has my vote, and I hope she has yours as well.

Pleasanton needs a committed affordable workforce housing advocate on City Council. If you want the City to make better progress in this area, vote for Zarina.
