In 1991, Claire Mack became the first African-American woman elected to the San Mateo City Council. She served three terms as councilwoman and three terms as mayor. During her years on the council, she fought to preserve and improve neighborhoods, advocated for activities for youth and worked to develop more affordable housing. Following her service in local government, she has continued to be a tireless advocate for the community, volunteering her time and expertise as a member of many boards and associations. Claire has served on the Mills Hospital Board of Trustees, San Mateo County Grand Jury, San Mateo County Arts Council, San Mateo NAACP, the North Central Neighborhood Council, San Mateo Park and Recreation Commission, Women’s Recovery Association and American Red Cross Board of Directors, among many others.  In 2009, Claire added author to her long list of accomplishments. Her recently published novel, Imitation of Life: The Next Millennium,   set in San Mateo, and, although it is a work of fiction, it is loosely based on a combination of her own life and the 1939 movie, “Imitation of Life.” Claire says that she hopes her book will help people not only live better lives but realize that San Mateo is a great city.
