Congressman Eric Swalwell will be our featured guest at the Hayward Rotary Club luncheon at 12:00 noon on Monday, May 8. The Congressman will present his keynote address, "Washington Update." Please join us for this special luncheon event.
Growing up in what now is California’s Fifteenth Congressional District taught Eric Swalwell a lot about hard work,strong principles,and planning for a brighter future. The oldest of four boys and son to Eric Sr., a retired police officer, and Vicky, who works as an administrative assistant, Swalwell was raised and attended public schools in the East Bay. A Division I soccer scholarship was his ticket to becoming the first person in his family to go to college. After earning undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Maryland, he returned to the East Bay to serve as a prosecutor in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for seven years. He then was elected to the Dublin City Council.
Eric Swalwell in 2012 was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives representing California’s Fifteenth Congressional District which includes Hayward. Now in his second term, he’s working hard to bring new energy, ideas, and a problem-solving spirit to Congress, with a focus on advancing policies that support equality, opportunity, and security.
Congressman Swalwell serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and believes protecting Americans is Congress’ most solemn duty. He is the top Democrat on the Subcommittee on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), responsible for the oversight, policy, activities, and budget of the CIA. He also serves on the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, where he addresses climate change and advocates for renewable energy.
Even while addressing national and international issues, Congressman Swalwell remains rooted in the region he represents. He flies home almost every weekend, and has been a leader in adopting social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat as well as technology like Skype to stay in constant contact with constituents. Eric is a Hayward Rotary Club member since 2013.
