* * * Terry Nagel was elected to the Burlingame City Council in 2003 and was re-elected in 2007. She served as Mayor during 2007 and is currently serving as Mayor. She is a veteran journalist who learned how local government works by covering city council, school board and county government meetings for local newspapers. She has been a Burlingame homeowner and active community volunteer for 33 years.
Terry started the Burlingame Pet Parade to promote community spirit, created the Community Wish List for San Mateo County to encourage people to donate to local nonprofits, introduced free financial planning classes for students to prepare them for "real-life" decisions and helped organize a community-wide planning exercise called a "charrette" to envision the future of downtown Burlingame. That vision is now captured in the city's Downtown Specic Plan. In 2004 Terry organized a group of citizens who helped redesign the city's website. She is currently working with others to create a social innovation hub and physical headquarters for the county's nonprofits, and on an "Encore Fellows" program that will match retired city managers with cities and counties that need working on defined projects.
Terry invites residents to organize a "Neighborhood Network" on their block for crime prevention and emergency preparedness in their neighborhood. The networks help neighbors get better acquainted with one another, inventory their skills and equipment, and get prepared for disasters.
During her years on the council, she has encouraged open government and citizen involvement in local government and succeeded in getting campaign finance reform adopted. Burlingame enjoys a growing reputation for managing its finances responsibly, offering a high level of service to residents and businesses, and being responsive to citizen inquiries.
Current Roles. In January 2011 Terry was re-elected to the board of directors of the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, which administers the county's half-cent sales tax for transportation-related projects and programs. Her current City Council assignments include serving as the city's representative on the City/County Association of Governments for San Mateo County (C/CAG), on ICLEI, (now called Local Governments for Sustainability), and on the San Mateo County Emergency Services Council. She is Burlingame’s alternate on the Peninsula Cities Consortium, which is working on high speed rail issues. She serves on the City Council's Civic Engagement and Community Recognition Subcommittees and is the council's liaison to the Parks and Recreation Department during budget planning.
She was the founder and Chair of the Burlingame Green Ribbon Task Force, which succeeded in getting a citywide Climate Action Plan adopted in 2009. In 2006 she was appointed by the county Board of Supervisors to the Utilities and Sustainability Task Force, which created an energy, water and sustainability plan for the future of San Mateo County. During 2009 she served as Chair of the San Mateo County Council of Cities, an organization composed of all council members in the county.
Community Activities. Terry has worked since the fall of 2002 to win better power service from Pacific Gas & Electric for the residents of Burlingame. After citizens suffered repeated and prolonged power failures, she formed a citizens' action group called Burlingamers Unwilling to Live with Blackouts (BULB) and set up two Town Hall Meetings that allowed hundreds of residents to register their complaints with both PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission, which regulates PG&E. BULB persuaded PG&E to spend more than $2.4 million on improvements to circuits in Burlingame, Hillsborough and Millbrae. From 2002 to 2003, the average Burlingame household experienced an 85 percent decrease in power outages. During 2010, BULB persuaded PG&E to spend another $3 million on improving reliability in other portions of Burlingame, San Mateo and Hillsborough. BULB is continuing to monitor power reliability.
Terry organized residents in 1996 and succeeded in getting three "monster houses" downsized in Burlingame. Her efforts led to the city's adoption of design review guidelines that have been the model for other cities.
Training and Experience. In 2006 Terry was one of 20 elected leaders chosen for the League of California Cities' California Civic Leadership Institute, a highly selective program that educates future leaders on issues facing the state. She is a 2003 graduate of the Coro Center for Civic Leadership's Community Fellows leadership program.
Terry started her career as a travel editor and went on to become a staff writer and editor for the San Mateo Times, where she covered 10 local cities, eight school districts, the courts and county government. She later worked as an editor at the San Francisco Chronicle, as Assistant Managing Editor of Forbes ASAP magazine, as Managing Editor of Great and as Communications Officer for the Skoll Foundation. She also founded and managed two online travel forums for and operated an out-of-print book search business in Burlingame for 18 years.
Terry currently works for Civic Ventures as Managing Editor of the web site, which promotes "encore careers" that offer pay, personal fulfillment and social purpose.
A resident and homeowner in Burlingame since 1978, Terry is married to Jim Nagel and has three children.
Terry has been awarded an Honorary Life Membership in PTA and the John Swett Award, the state's highest education writing award.
Terry has been extremely active in the community. She served on the Board of Directors for CALL Primrose Center, which helps the needy, and has volunteered with many local organizations, including Music at Kohl Mansion, the San Mateo Arboretum Society, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame.
