Hayward adds new city council members

Maira Sanchez,

The Hayward city council appointed four new members to the Personnel Commission on Jan. 17: Hayward natives Allen Zargar, Giancarlo Scalise, Jose Guadamuz and Rachel Lucas, who range in age from 26 to 40.

The Personnel Commission handles the city’s employment lists, Affirmative Action plan and job descriptions for the city government, according to the City Council website. It also holds hearings for employee grievances and appeals for disciplinary action, for which it issues an advisory decision to the City Manager.

The commission is made up of seven members who serve four-year terms. Zargar, Scalise, Guadamuz and Lucas all have had prior experience serving on a city council commission.
