Hayward Councilmember Francisco Zermeno

EPISODE 6 | Hayward Councilmember Francisco Zermeno is a collector of things, not to mention two terms on the Hayward City Council. But he also boasts more than 8,000 pieces of Spiderman memorabilia and the collection is less a love of the comic book character and more a reminder of his unique immigrant experience. And yes, he has a noted tequila collection, too!

On this special Labor Day edition of the East Bay Citizen Show, I chat with Zermeno, also a long-time Chabot College Spanish professor, about his controversial vote against Hayward city employees two years ago, the fallout, and how he plans to win a third term next June in a council race destined to be one of the highlights of the 2016 local election season.
