Supervisor Wilma Chan - In Memorium

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors, County Administrator and our executive leadership team extend our deepest condolences to the family of Supervisor Wilma Chan -- our distinguished colleague, mentor, and friend.

We remember and honor Wilma as a champion of community, a fierce leader, and a trusted colleague. She devoted her career to helping the underserved and uninsured, with a passion for children, families and seniors, early childhood education, environmental health, job creation and economic development.
