Integrity. Independence. Representation.
They aren’t just buzzwords to me; they define my career as an elected leader and my lifelong advocacy for the communities I’m proud to serve.
Money talks in politics, but I’ve charted a different path: I listen. From the day I first filed my papers to serve as a Fremont City Council to this opportunity to represent YOU on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, I haven’t accepted a penny of special interest money. My office doors are always open, and good ideas can come from anywhere. But no corporate lobbyist or developer can ever buy my vote or my voice.
YOU deserve a leader who won’t bow down to the deepest pockets in the room, someone who believes with every fiber of their being that Alameda County needs a voice who will lead with integrity and independence.
My name is Vinnie Bacon, and I am that voice. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Transportation Engineering and City Planning from UC Berkeley, I’ve worked in the tech and finance sectors, and I’ve been a forceful advocate for the underdog.
On the Fremont City Council, I have fought for affordable housing, opposed encroachment on treasured open space, demanded an acceleration of the $15 minimum wage, and stood up for the DREAMers in our community against the bigotry of the Trump Administration. I’m the only candidate in this election who proudly and unambiguously stands up for a woman’s right to choose and for complete LGBTQI equality.
I’m a straight shooter who will use my experience and education to work for intelligent regional planning and improved transit options, such as Valley Link, and implement bold and creative policies that will reverse the decline in our region’s quality of life.
I’m the grassroots candidate for Supervisor who you can trust to act in the best interests of our community. Join me. Sign up today to volunteer, donate, or endorse me. Together, we can chart a better and more sustainable course for Alameda County. Together, we can make sure that Alameda County lives up to our shared values.
We rely on donations from residents, not corporations or developers.
Vinnie is happy to answer any questions you may have.
Please consider helping out with our campaign by offering to call voters, drop literature or take a yard sign.

Hi, this is Vinnie Bacon, the clean money candidate running for Alameda County Board of Supervisors. I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy during these unprecedented times.
The next year will be a particularly challenging time for all of us, including public servants in our community. We will have tough decisions ahead, and I’m up for the challenge. As a City Councilmember in Fremont, I’ve been working with our staff to make sure that the City is doing all it can to protect our residents and our businesses during this crisis, like setting up a coronavirus testing facility. I’ve also been looking at what needs to be done at the county level to better prepare us for another pandemic or natural disaster.
One of the biggest line items in the County’s budget is health services. This crisis has made the need for a robust and well-functioning public healthcare system even more clear. And while first responders, doctors, nurses and public health officials have performed fantastically to keep Alameda County’s death toll to fewer than 100 people to date, it has also pointed out many of the existing problems with the Alameda Health System. There are staff shortages and staff has had trouble getting enough personal protective equipment during the coronavirus crisis . If elected, I’ll work hard to resolve these problems by reforming the AHS.
After earning more votes than any other candidate in the March primary, I’m looking forward to growing my campaign for the November election. But what does campaigning in the middle of a pandemic look like? Like many of you who are suddenly facing uncertainty in your life, we’re adjusting our campaign one day at a time. For the time being, we won’t be able to knock on doors or go to events, so I hope to use videos as a way to communicate with you all.
I also want to ask for your help. We need volunteers who can make phone calls in the fall and host Zoom events with your friends and colleagues to introduce me to them. If you can help, please visit bacon4supervisor.com/volunteer and sign up.
As mentioned, I’m the clean money candidate. That means I’m not taking money from corporations, political action committees or lobbyists. Instead, I’m asking for grassroots donations of any amount. If you can make a contribution, go to bacon4supervisor.com/contribute/ today.
I would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have. Please contact me on Facebook or through my web site, www.bacon4supervisor.com or via email at email@example.com.
Friends, stay safe, stay strong, and look out for one another. Thank you.
