San Leandro rapper and community activist Sara Mestas is known to the parents and schoolchildren at Corvallis Elementary as simply Mo Wiley. The budding local music talent has a new album and appeared Thursday on the Sacramento morning news program “Sacramento & Co.” to talk about her music and her role in bringing back the crossing guards program initially cut by the city of San Leandro this summer. Mestas was one of the more vocal parents who volunteered to for morning and afternoon guard duty while the city council and school district hammered out a cost-sharing deal for the school year. You can still see her working her shift on school days.
