Growing up in Markham Heights, the lowest income neighborhood of Vacaville, I have witnessed the ups and downs families have endured. As we face uncertain economic hardships, we must never lose sight of our ability to focus on what is most important: the ability to work to support our families, and raise our kids in an environment that makes all revaluate what is most important in life.
Vacaville has provided the opportunity for our residents to earn the American Dream. As a City Council member I will strongly support the removal of 'redtape' that creates challenges for our local businesses to survive, maintain, and expand. In addition, I will strongly support investing in developing our infastructure to help recruit pro-community businesses, particularly the biotechnology and other manufacturing industries. Like many Americans, I don't just want to see 'Made in USA,' I want to see 'Made in Vacaville.'
The ability to earn a good living is what brought my parents to this area. Everything they did was to create better opportunities for themselves to escape poverty and leave something for us (their kids) to expand upon. I also will support prioritizing reinvesting in our quality of life for our kids to access enrichment opportunities, fun activites for adults, and safe places for our disabled population and elders.
To do this, we have to strenghten City-School-Community partnerships and think-outside the box to support inclusive approaches to create self-sustainable and safe communities. As someone who has overcome adversity from a mislabeled gang-member to biotechnology and biological science professor, and elected school board member, I'm eager to provide the leadership to do so. Your financial contributions to our campaign, Silva for City Council, District 3, is an investment not just in our generation, but our future generation, too! United, let's move forward.
Show your support for this campaign by endorsing it and sharing why!

Thank you for your support throughout this Grassroots campaign! Make no mistake, EVERY DOLLAR HELPED tremendously!
Several thousands of dollars from PACS were raised AGAINST our campaign, but this campaign showed the power of unity when we come together and support a campaign truly for the people and by the people!
As of 11/10/20 our campaign is up by just over 10%!
The City of Vacaville has sent out an email congratulating us and informing us that the newly elected City Councilmembers will be sworn in on December 8 at 6 pm!
Details of this event are coming as part of this regular meeting due to COVID restrictions and increased cases.
In the meantime, I didn't run for the pagentry and prestige. I ran to 'EMPOWER OUR NEIGHBORHOODS' so we can unite to move towards a better future for all of our families.
I am looking for volunteers to help organize Town Halls and get involved in other projects and events. I am also looking for Community Organizers to collect and diseminate information throghout our neighborhoods in District 3. Having a pathway of communication will be key in understanding how I can best serve our District 3 residents and City of Vacaville.
