Berkeley City Council

Moving Us Forward Together

Mari Mendonca

As a Berkeley native, single mother of four, and third generation Berkeley resident, I have a deep connection to our City. Being a resident of District 8 in my most formative years, I attended Willard Middle School and worked for a local small business, Colby Pharmacy.These early experiences rooted me in our neighborhood and taught me the ethics of hard work, integrity, accountability and a passion for taking care of and being part of my community. As our District representative I will bring these values to the Council unifying the voices of our diverse, engaged, and devoted neighbors as we embrace our present and envision our future.
