Ellen Corbett is running for East Bay Regional Park District board

Ellen Corbett
Coming up on two years out of elected office, former state Senate Majority Leader Ellen Corbett is running this fall for a seat on the East Bay Regional Park District Board of Directors.

Corbett filed papers on Tuesday for the park district board. She will be seeking to replace long-time board member Doug Siden, who is not expected to run for re-election this year. Siden has served since 1992.

The Ward 4 seat represents Alameda, a portion of Oakland, parts of Hayward, San Leandro, and San Lorenzo. If elected, she would oversee a portion of Anthony Chabot Regional Park, Crown Beach, Oyster Bay, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Shoreline.

Very few East Bay politicians have a more expansive resume than Corbett. She served as San Leandro mayor and councilmember, followed by three terms in the Assembly and another two in the state Senate.

Corbett termed out of office in December 2014 and briefly took a position with the Hayward Unified School District. She is currently an appointed member of the state Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.


  1. By MW:

    I have no idea no idea as to what are the real main actual responsibilities of the board members of the EBRPD, however if it is merely to be politically correct, going along with whatever are the latest fads, and feeding the general public a lot of garbage and nonsense, then Ellen Corbett is one of the very most qualified persons in the entire state of California for the job.

  2. Another career politician who feels compelled to return to the public trough.

  3. Because a kushy job doing nothing for 160k a year isnt good enough. These people's egos wont let them not be talked about.

  4. Bitch can't stop nuzzling on the public tit.

    You go, Whorbett--down the drain!

  5. Vote Daniel Chesmore for EBRPD Ward 4. He is an advocate for climate change and is very active in the community.
