Redwood City’s longtime former councilmember Ian Bain has joined The Magical Bridge Foundation’s board.
The nonprofit’s work centers on advocating for, designing and building parks and playgrounds in the Bay Area and beyond for people ranging in age, size and ability. One such Magical Bridge Playground is located at Red Morton Park in Redwood City.
In joining the board, Bain, who served on the Redwood City council for 18 years, brings a diverse professional background encompassing business, government and the nonprofit sectors, according to the Foundation. He said he’s long been “drawn to causes that foster equity and inclusion” and that he also likes to focus on kindness as we need “much more of that in the world.”
Also joining the nonprofit’s board are Elain Captain, a director in the Transactions Group at Harrison Street, and Amanda Steckler, a philanthropist who will assume the board seat vacated by her husband, Vince’s, recent passing.
