Duane Bay

Executive Director

As EPACANDO’s Executive Director, Duane Bay returns to intensely place-based projects after five years of regional focus on housing, hazard resilience and equitable land use with the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG).

For eight years prior, Duane led San Mateo County’s Department of Housing and Housing Authority.  In this and previous positions, Duane focused on building institution capacity for collaborative sub-regional problem-solving:  a 21-jurisdiction housing policy collaborative, housing trust fund, housing advocacy coalition and community land trust.

These projects built on Duane’s local experience as a 44-year East Palo Alto resident, former city council member and mayor during a period of rapid development, resident displacement and cultural transition; and on capacities accumulated as a hurdler, winger, day care worker, middle school teacher, and early-stage executive in two tech start-ups.
