About our Hosts:
Allen W. Warren (BA ’89, Political Science) has represented District 2 on the Sacramento City Council since 2012. Upon graduation from Cal State East Bay (formerly Cal State Hayward), Mr. Warren became one of the top brokers nationally with Dean Witter Reynolds. He then decided to return home to Sacramento and start a business to grow and enrich his old neighborhood. As a builder/developer and owner of his own firm New Faze Development, Inc., Mr. Warren worked with a local non-profit to build single family homes in North and South Sacramento, helping dozens of low and moderate income, and migrant families achieve the dream of home ownership. He has received numerous awards for his community service and philanthropic efforts and was recognized as one of the 50 most influential people in Sacramento by Sacramento Magazine in 2006. He is a trustee of the Cal State East Bay Educational Foundation, and chair of the Entertainment and Sports Center (ESC) Committee, Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA), and City of Sacramento Audit Committee, as well as serving on numerous other boards and commissions.
Howard Chan (BS ’00, Business Administration) was appointed City Manager, City of Sacramento, in February 2017, following three months as Interim City Manager. In this position, he provides leadership and direction for the operation and management of all City Departments. Previously, Mr. Chan served as Assistant City Manager, with responsibility for daily operations, the development and implementation of Sacramento’s performance management program, and overall service delivery efforts. Mr. Chan has more than 24 years of experience in the parking and transportation industry, with a career spanning the public and private sector environments. He served as Sacramento’s Parking Services Manager for 10.5 years, managing over 10,000 off-street parking spaces, 65,000 square feet of commercial retail space, and the city-wide parking enforcement, parking meter collections, and facility maintenance operations. Mr. Chan was honored with the 2008 American Public Works Association’s Manager of the Year Award, Sacramento Chapter, in the category of Technology and Engineering.
