Ron C. Bowen has lived in Vallejo since 2005. Mr. Bowen is an Affordable Housing Professional and works with VA clients, seniors and disabled residents to ensure housing retention. He is the current Treasurer of the Glen Cove Community Association, which serves over 3,000 homes. He served as a non-commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force and is a graduate of the Air Force Leadership School. He and his wife are the proud parents of two children ages 17 and 14. My experience in fiscal management and strategic planning will help to ensure the future of GVRD to continue to serve the citizens and children of Vallejo. My particular interest is in programming for children. I intend to advocate for continued and expanded programming, particularly low and moderate cost after school and summer programs.
