My Top 3 Priorities

  • Economic Development
  • Healthy Community
  • Public Safety



My name is Darrelle Demps and I am asking for your support and your vote in my bid to represent you on the Hayward City Council.

Hayward has been home for me for over 30 years and is a city that I want to help continue to reach its full potential. 

I attended Calaroga Junior High and Mount Eden High school and after that earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from San Francisco State University. 

My background in Human Resources and as an IT Executive have prepared me to work with people from all backgrounds to find calculated and proven solutions. I am a strong decision maker who will tackle the tough issues for all Hayward residents.

I was elected to the National Black MBA Association Board of Directors and served for over 11 years. In that capacity, I ensured that all committees were functioning properly and were adequately staffed to perform their duties. I was also responsible for the organization’s community outreach, education and professional development committees. I administered the scholarship program, reviewed budgets and financial needs and provided year end reports and recommendations for the upcoming year. One of my greatest joys was working with the Leaders of Tomorrow program. That program was implemented to help develop leadership skills in high school students. That goal was accomplished by assisting them with academics, public speaking, resume writing, college preparation, community service, personal skills and learning how to perform business cases. We also partnered mentors from the business community with students.   

Also, I spent 15 years as a volunteer serving our veterans. Those duties –  as simple as  providing companionship, escorting them or just serving coffee and tea – were all dear to my heart.  

In my own neighborhood, I keep my neighbors informed about events and meetings because civic engagement is the backbone of moving Hayward forward. My community service experience has prepared me to work with all the residents of Hayward. 

If elected, my top priorities for Hayward would be economic development with innovative approaches to bringing new businesses and job growth to our community. I will improve communication with our neighborhoods by hosting town hall meetings to allow the citizens of Hayward to give feedback on their concerns. 

I have a reputation for fairness, commitment, results and accountability.  

Coming from a proud military family, I seek to continue our family values of service to our community by asking for your vote to represent you on the Hayward City Council.
