Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Affordable Housing - Provide more options for longtime residence, students, and working class families to remain in Daly City.
  • Public Safety - Safety and security for Daly City is a priority. We need to support efforts to sustain public safety for the largest city in San Mateo county
  • Civic Youth Engagement - We're living in a time of history where the need for young people to step up in leadership is vital to the future of the is country. We must create pipelines and mentorship for youth to become politically engaged.

Biografía


PAST

I come from an immigrant family who came from Canada via the Philippines to the United States in the early 1980s. My mother who was a nurse and my father who worked in various blue collared jobs, I understand the struggle of survival and resilience. Growing up, I watched my mother work the graveyard shift, come home to make breakfast for her two kids, and take us school. My father come home in the evening and I would greet him with deep embrace as I grasped his callous, burnt, and cracked hands from his job as a welder. Their long commutes, sleepless nights, and the hope to see both their sons succeed is what kept them going.

Through my family's experiences, I understood what resiliency meant and how I can apply it to my own life. Heavily influenced by Ethnic Studies, I realized how history shapes identity and how understanding the stories of the oppressed has informed my motivation to SERVE THE COMMUNITY

PRESENT

As a 23 year old finishing off his first real first job after college and entering the Asian American Studies Masters Program at San Francisco State University in the fall of 2002, I did not imagine that I would be living in Daly City over the past 16 years. These 16 years is where I became a husband, a father, a community engaged scholar where I received my Education Doctorate at the University of San Francisco, play an integral role in mentoring hundreds of students to become teachers and leaders through their participation in the Pin@y Educational Partnerships (PEP), and served on Daly City's Library Commission, and currently as the Vice Chair of the Planning Commission.

 

This city is where my kids are growing up and where I have settled my roots. My wife, Arlene, is also involved in Daly City Leadership where she serves as the Vice Chair of the Arts & Culture Commission. She has been instrumental in showcasing local artists and formed a partnership with Skyline College's CIPHER Learning Community to paint beautiful murals on electric boxes around the city. My daughter, Amianan, is a dancer and performer at the award-winning Westlake School of the Performing Arts (WSPA).

 

Daly City's services and activities are essential to creatingcommunity. Gellert Park is the playground where my kids slid down there first slide and where they checked out there first books at Serramonte Branch Library; the weekly Farmer's Market at Serramonte Mall is where I enjoyed the fresh produce to cook my traditional Filipino food; Off the Grid on Tuesday evenings is where I marvel at the genius fusions of culinary art created by Food Truck chefs; and San Bruno Mountains is where I run to keep sane and be one with nature. Daly City has become part of me.

 

Future


I have worked multiple jobs as a faculty Adjunct at multiple colleges and universities and at the same time working in my non profit organization. I would teach at Skyline College in the mornings then commute to UC Davis to teach in the afternoon. I also did a similar commute to Sonoma State University where I taught an evening course twice a week. There would be times were I taught on the weekends to teach graduate students at the University of San Francisco. I taught because 
I am passionate about social justice and I believe in my students, but it was also out of necessity to pay for rent and feed my family.

What I learned from my students and their families is that we shared similar experiences. They expressed narratives of holding down multiple jobs, going to school, supporting their family, and the struggle has become unbearable. I have listened to stories of my students who couch-surfed between friends and family homes to attend college, families moving to other cities or states because they could not sustain themselves in communities where they have lived for decades, and undocumented families fearing that parents will be deported. 

The future is now and this is what fuels me to run for Daly City Council. Just like my parents who immigrated to this country nearly 40 years ago, I want a community where they feel secure, safe, and have aspirations to transform our city, instead of leaving it behind. The dream to keep our families rooted and supported is what is important to me. I encourage anyone who shares these perspectives to join me on my journey.

All of these experiences inform and drive my work as a hopeful Daly City Council member.

Like many people in the Bay Area, wages have not kept pace with skyrocketing housing prices. We must find collaborative approaches to include all stakeholders to address this issue.

— October 8, 2018 Rod Daus-Magbual

Our diverse community is what makes Daly City sacred and special. We must protect our most impacted communities.
