  Mr. STARK. Madam Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Kevin 
Dowling, who is retiring from the Hayward, California City Council 
after 26 years of public service. Over the course of his career, he has 
served on many Council commissions and intergovernmental agencies, 
including the Hayward Economic Development Committee, City Council 
Commercial Center, Hayward Youth Commission, Hayward Economic 
Development Committee, and the Alameda County Transportation 
Improvement Agency.
  Mr. Dowling has been a Hayward resident since 1962. He received his 
high school diploma from Moreau Catholic High School in 1980 and 
graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Santa Clara University 
in 1984.
  Before becoming a council member for the city of Hayward, Mr. Dowling 
served as an aide to Alameda County Supervisors Gail Steele and Alice 
Lai-Bitker. He was Alumni Director for Moreau Catholic High School and 
Development Director for Eden Information and Referral. He serves as 
Development Director for the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Leandro.
  Mr. Dowling has been a vital part of many projects in the city of 
Hayward, including downtown redevelopment and neighborhood 
improvements. His leadership and exemplary public service have made an 
impact in Hayward and beyond.
  He is retiring from the City Council at the end of his term on July 
13, 2010. I join the city of Hayward in expressing appreciation for his 
many years of public service.
