My Top 3 Priorities

  • Reduce crime and retain police officers.
  • Address our city's growing population of homeless, substance abusers, and people with mental health issues.
  • Improve access to economic opportunity for all Stocktonians including housing, jobs, and quality child care.

Dyane Burgos Medina grew up in Stockton and graduated from Bear Creek High School. Dyane was voted “Senior of the Year” for her work in community service and with children, as well as her achievements in sports and academics.

Upon graduation from high school, Dyane moved to San Diego to attend the University of California, San Diego. During her time there, she studied Spanish and human development. Dyane would ultimately receive her Master of Social Work from Stanislaus State University.

Immediately upon graduation from graduate School, Dyane knew she wanted to continue her education in the legal field to become a true advocate for the people she wanted to help. She applied and was immediately accepted to the Laurence Drivon School of Law where she graduated in May 2013.

In November 2012, Councilmember Susan Eggman was elected to the California State Assembly, leaving a vacancy on the Stockton City Council. Dyane applied with the belief that working on the city council would be a valuable way to give back to the community by lending her social work and legal perspective to the City of Stockton. Although many other qualified citizens applied, Dyane was chosen to fulfill the two-year vacancy.

Dyane’s passion for our community’s youth is exemplified in both her work and service to Stockton. Dyane has a long career working with neglected and abused children, mentoring youth through Big Brothers Big Sisters, as the Vice President of a charitable organization played a key role in securing over a million dollars over the next five years for mental health services to reduce bullying, crime, and homelessness.

Dyane is currently a clinical social worker for St. Joseph’s Medical Center and is assisting our sick and dying community members and ensuring they have the resources needed to maintain a dignified quality of life. She also serves on the Stockton Public Schools Foundation board, the Midtown/Magnolia Coordinating Committee, and is Vice President of the San Joaquin Pride Center.

Dyane and her husband Gustavo proudly call Stockton home where they are raising their daughter, Delilah Grace.
