During her 28 years in Alamo, Vicki Koc has become well known among residents for her involvement in the community. Currently president of the Alamo Incorporation Movement, Koc has served in several capacities in civic groups that include the Alamo Road Improvement Committee and San Ramon Valley Education Foundation.
While her primary goal is to see Alamo become a town, Koc said she is running for Town Council because she feels the experience of shepherding the incorporation process has given her unique insights into what comes next. "I want to make sure the new town starts out on a strong footing. And having that knowledge of all the different things that go into it that we've looked at and researched, it makes sense," she said. "I'm very goal-oriented, and I can usually bring people together to work together."
She lists another asset as being forward thinking, looking two to six months down the road.
Koc said that her time spent on incorporation petition drives and public hearings makes her uniquely qualified and has given her a strong understanding of what residents want to see happen there.
"Because I've done all these things I've met a lot of people within the Alamo community and I think I've got a pretty good ear for what they want," she said.
This includes keeping intact the scenic beauty of Alamo, giving the town a voice on regional boards, and letting Alamo make its own decisions.
