Working in Vallejo
I was born and raised in Vallejo, CA. I grew up experiencing cultural and racial diversity in this city like no other. I have attended schools in Vallejo where I interacted with many supportive, uplifting academic staff. The teachers that I've had at Wardlaw Elementary were the most motivating preceptors. The musical talent that arose from Vallejo is also outstanding. We represent musical artists notoriously known as Mac Dre, H.E.R., E40, etc. Sure, there are certain neighborhoods in Vallejo that can be unsafe and dangerous, but that goes for many cities too. I have appreciated the community's efforts in building a better city by promoting racial inclusion and unity when it comes to fighting racial injustice. I love my city and most especially the people.
Vallejo is destined for great things. Shedding its unfair image of a crime infested city, it is now absolutely on the rebound! Homes are being fixed up, business is booming, improvements are being made all the time. New business coming in, the old downtown is becoming 'gentrified', and the new prosperity is showing everywhere you turn. Home prices are booming but still (relatively) affordable for the Bay Area. Crime is down, cops are being hired. A new school Superintendent has great plans and vision (with many changes already implemented like; closed campus, increased security, etc,) to correct the school system. What has always been awesome about Vallejo is its weather and location - the best in the Bay Area! Booming artist community breathing new life in to downtown. Many residents are community involved and optimistic about the great changes we are experiencing. Lovely old homes and scenic hills. It's not perfect, but its promising and flourishing.
I live in a nice neighborhood, moved here August 2019 from San Francisco. I'm glad I was able to get my house last year as covid raised the housing cost and I was able to move my mom here. Overall I like living here. I'm 5 minutes away from the freeway, costco, target, safeway shopping centers. It's quiet in my neighborhood and I'm happy with that. I go to downtown Vallejo on the weekends for the farmers market and they have great selections. I can't say the same for the other neighborhoods but my experience has been great so far. Like every place there's a good and bad.
