Director Gordon Galvan has been a government and community relations

consultant for more than twenty years. His diverse business background includes

his consulting practice as well as commercial and residential real estate holdings.

Gordon served as President of the Davis Street Family Resource Center for eight

years and was instrumental in launching the first federally qualified healthcare

clinic in San Leandro. He served as Vice Mayor for the City of San Leandro and

was elected to the San Leandro City Council for two terms. Gordon also has a long

history of volunteering and raising funds for many non-profit organizations. He

currently serves as Chairman of the Board of the Alameda County Fair


As both a business owner and former elected official, Gordon has an in-depth

understanding of the needs and motivations of both sides in these often-complex

negotiations. His longstanding personal relationships with elected and appointed

officials and staff throughout Northern California has served him well when

advocating for and representing the Eden Healthcare District and its residents.


Gordon is the proud father of six children. He and his wife, Roseann, live with

their children and quirky German Shepherd, Beara, in Castro Valley. In his spare

time, Gordon enjoys traveling, enjoying great restaurants and rooting for his

beloved San Francisco Giants.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

My political philosophy is to provide the best quality of care for the best price.  I will fight for the people of Castro Valley to ensure that they are getting their monies worth out of the Eden Healthcare District.  Spending our resources wisely and serving the community are my top priorities.
