Hi, I’m Connie Herrick and I’m running for Piedmont City Council.
Piedmont has been my home for 51 years. I feel deeply fortunate to have lived the majority of my life in our wonderful City. My parents and I settled in Piedmont in 1969.
I attended Piedmont Middle School and graduated Piedmont High in 1975.
My husband Mark and I met 40 years ago in San Francisco. We purchased our Greenbank home in 1992. Our son Matt attended Beach Elementary, PMS and PHS. He graduated from USC currently works as a senior product manager at Electronic Arts. And we have Kapo, our German Shepherd, a recently retired search and rescue dog.
When Matt was growing up, I was a full-time working mom. I volunteered as a classroom helper, gave presentations on wellness, drove for fieldtrips, soccer and water polo games, and served as a medic for our soccer team.
Mark and I are active in our newly renamed Community Resiliency Group (formerly known as Neighborhood Watch). Mark is a Buddhist minister and offers free, weekly meditation classes to our community.
I have a 40 year career in both the private and non-profit sectors of healthcare, financial services and marketing communications. You are welcome to look up my CV online at LinkedIn.com. I earned my MBA from the University of San Francisco and hold a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I’ve been a Licensed Acupuncturist for over 10 years, and served as executive director for the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic, volunteering my treatment services for underserved women with cancer in Oakland.
I am now at a time in my life where I am able and want to volunteer my experience, skills, time and energy to work for you and our City.
I hope you will vote...vote for me...and mail in your ballot early. Thank you!
