The outstanding candidates for the three, three-year seats are: Michael Armstrong, Beth Pollard (incumbent), and Pier Sun Ho. Click on each candidate’s name to read their statement.

The candidates will have the chance to elaborate on their written candidate statements and to answer your questions about serving on the Board. The new Board will be seated after the congregational meeting of February 13, 2021.


Voting for Candidates

Voting will be online and available to members on January 30, with an alternative method available; see church communication on voting instructions. Even though this is an uncontested election, please show your support for these three wonderful members who are generously contributing their talent, time and dedication to our church community. Voting will end at the start of the congregational meeting on February 13.

The candidates were selected by the Nominating Committee, which is comprised of Victoria Bowen, Lynne Cahoon, Dayana Claghorn, Robin Cooper, Selene Fabiano, Max Jenny, Sandy Portillo-Robins and Terry Stokes, and convened by Board Vice President Helen Tinsley-Jones. For more information, email nominating@uucb.org, or call Helen at 510-334-1633.
