Castro Valley's Own Rachel Maddow
Go Rachel! Go Rachel!
Keep up the Fabulous Work.
Thank you for presenting that which is real.

Rachel MaddowCVHS Grad To Host Nationwide MSNBC Show

Castro Valley Forum

If you’re watching the Democratic National Convention on MSNBC this week, you’re likely to see political commentator Rachel Maddow, who grew up in Castro Valley. 

“Rachel has, and always had, tremendous energy,” said her mom, Castro Valley resident Elaine Maddow in an interview at The Forum office Friday. “We keep saying to ourselves who is that kid and where did she come from?” 

Elaine and Rachel’s Father Robert both agree it is somewhat surreal to see their daughter on national television. “It’s all incredible, and we are very proud of her,” said Robert. (more)

Rachel Maddow always thought she was an outsider. How did she become a star?

"Can you believe that sellout, Barack Obama?" says Rachel Maddow, looking around the room. "Let's hit him from the left!" It's 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 5, and the six-foot-tall Maddow, wearing her trademark baggy 501 jeans and thick-soled sneakers, has just burst into her staff meeting in a small office at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, home of MSNBC.

Rachel Maddow is more than just an excellent TV host and progressive hero. She's also a policy geek who hails from Castro Valley and who, because of her father's long experience working for East Bay MUD, knows a LOT about California water policy. (more)

Castro Valley High School Graduation Speech

Rachel Maddow's wishes for her home town Castro Valley, California.

Partial text from her Castro Valley High School graduation speech
 

The year is 1990, we’re living in the San Francisco Bay Area and this community is still pushing to ban textbooks and is still upset that there is not prayer in schools.

Castro Valley has the potential to be an exciting, interesting progressive community. But the people that dominate it today I don’t think are ready to let that happen. 

To those of you who are getting fulltime jobs, joining the military or are going to college, I implore you; give something back to this town! 

We will carry the Castro Valley High School Diploma with us for the rest of our lives. We can turn this community around and let the existing oligarchy here know that we won’t stand for their closed mindedness.

We the class of 1990 can make Castro Valley an interesting and exciting place to live, believe it or not. We, We alone are the ones who have to do it.  We can’t leave it up to our elders anymore because tonight we become those elders. 

So to the class of 1990 I commend you on 4 years well spent. I think we made an original impression on this school that will last for a long time. But we have to do more. 

Don’t assume that things won’t change here where you live.  Make them Change. I wish the class of 1990 the best of luck in everything we choose to do.  I warn the rest of this community here we come! Thank you.
