Aiming to bring a new, representative perspective to San Ramon City Council. 



A Mother & Technologist

My name is Sabina Zafar and I am running for the future of San Ramon. I am running for San Ramon City Council because I am passionate about serving my home and the people that are the heart of this community, and to represent the voice of the people of San Ramon in City Hall. 

I grew up in a household in which public service was practiced as a religion; serving my community is in my DNA. Being a true leader who has never been afraid of standing up for what is right and served his community selflessly, my father is my inspiration.

For the past 22 years, I have volunteered my time in my community, in my children's schools, and in my neighborhoods. It was a matter of time —after raising my children and building a career for myself in technology—I dedicated myself to serving the city that I love dearly and call home.

I humbly ask for your vote and support on November 6th.

Yours Sincerely,


“We need to build a strong community for our beautiful city, a place where diversity and innovation thrive, to improve the quality of life for each and every resident of San Ramon”
