Director of Real Estate Development
Prior to serving on the Council, Vice-Mayor Terry represented Rancho Cordova on the Sacramento City Unified School District Board from 2008-2012 where he worked with the community to stop the closure of A.M. Winn Elementary school. In 2014, Terry led the campaign to support the passage of Measure H, a half-cent local sales tax measure that raised an additional $7 million for the city in its first year. Terry is a dedicated community volunteer and has donated his time, talent, and expertise to support various organizations in the region and has a particular interest in mentoring youth. He was a big brother for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of the Greater Sacramento area for eight years and served as a Board Member for BBBS and Board Chair in 2010. Terry camped out on the IMAX marquee in downtown Sacramento and vowed not to come down until 100 men signed up to be big brothers; it took over 24 hours to accomplish the goal. When not serving the constituents of Rancho Cordova, Terry serves as the Director of Real Estate Development for NeighborWorks HomeOwnership Center Sacramento Region where he oversees single-family for sale affordable housing development in an eleven county region in Northern California. In addition, he manages the organization’s in-house realty services team and the Community Housing Services Department that contracts with multiple cities and counties to administer Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, and CalHome programs. He earned a B.A. degree from UC Davis where he majored in political science with a minor in communications. Donald married his wife Angela in 2009, and they have two sons, Keaton, five-years-old, and Holden, one-year-old.
