Councilmember Kathy Y. Biala

District 2


Kathy Yaeko Biala became Marina’s District 2 rep after prevailing in the first election since the city switched from at-large council races. A member of the Marina Planning Commission since 2016, Biala also served on the steering committee of the Citizens for Sustainable Marina, the board of the Sierra Club’s Ventana chapter, and the board of the Marina Chamber of Commerce. Biala grew up in Chicago; her father was a professor at the University of Chicago, and her mother was a Chicago public school teacher.

On her campaign website,, she describes her chosen profession: “Through nursing, I have effectively worked in all kinds of teams and managed large budgets in hospitals and healthcare organizations.” Also on the website, Biala celebrates her home town: “Our city is perhaps one of the most harmonious examples of communities respecting, honoring, and celebrating our unique strength of diversity and inclusion. Even with high poverty rates and other socio-economic challenges, Marina has always been a giving, friendly, accepting city that has collectively accomplished enormous civic and charitable actions. This is at the heart of who we are.”
