District 5 Councilmember Burgos Medina



Dyane Burgos Medina was born the daughter of a hard-working mother and an immigrant father who served in the United States Army. Dyane grew up in Stockton and was an active community volunteer and enjoyed working with children. She participated in school sports, received academic honors and was voted "Senior of the Year" by the time she graduated with her diploma from Bear Creek High School.


After graduation, Dyane moved to San Diego to attend the University of California, San Diego, where she studied Spanish and Human Development. During her undergraduate studies there, she also participated in sorority life, became politically active, studied abroad for a year in Spain and Costa Rica, and traveled Europe, South America, and Central America.


After graduating college, Dyane continued her education by enrolling in the Master's degree in Social Work program at California State University, Stanislaus. After completing her graduate degree she began working as an advocate for neglected and abused children in the Central Valley. While back in Stockton, Dyane continued to be active in the community in various ways including mentoring youth through Big Brothers Big Sisters, and becoming the president of the Stockton chapter of her college sorority.


With the goal of being an even greater advocate for people in need, Dyane applied and enrolled in the Laurence Drivon School of Law to pursue her Juris Doctorate. She successfully completed her legal studies and graduated in May 2013.


In November 2012, Councilmember Susan Eggman's election to the California State Assembly created a vacancy on the Stockton City Council. Hoping to bring her spirit of civic engagement, Social Work expertise, and legal perspective to the City of Stockton, Dyane applied for appointment to that seat. On January 9, 2013, out of a field of 12 qualified citizens, Dyane was appointed to complete the two year vacancy.


Dyane continues to help the children of her community in her job as a social worker for Child Protective Services while serving the community at large by partnering with citizens and organizations for the betterment of Stockton. She serves on eight council committees and is the Vice Chair of the California State University Stockton Center Site Authority, the Community Improvement and Crime Prevention Committee, and the Legislation/Environmental Committee. While on the Council, Dyane will work toward the immediate need of improving public safety and cleaning up blight while diligently working to improving underlying issues such as poverty, education, and unemployment. Dyane will continue to be a voice of fairness and reasonableness, and an advocate for all Stocktonians.
