Kitty Lopez

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, FIRST 5 SAN MATEO COUNTY

“I am so pleased to be co-chairing the Advisory Committee of Build-Up for SMC Children with Supervisor and Board President Dave Pine. Quality care and education for our youngest children is critical so they get a successful start in life. We desperately need more spaces for children throughout our county; Build Up is working to meet that need! “​

Dave Pine

SAN MATEO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS – DISTRICT 1

“I am excited to co-chair the Build Up initiative’s Advisory Body because quality child care must be part of our civic dialogue to ensure that our communities thrive. Child care should be considered a public infrastructure that requires community support and investment, and Build Up is taking much needed steps to drive solutions to the child care shortage.”
