She lives in Oakland with her husband Salvatore Fahey and her children Dominic and Lena.
She was endorsed by fellow councilmembers De La Feunte and Jane Brunner, as well as former councilmembers Henry Chang, Dick Spees, and Danny Wan. Schaaf was also endorsed by the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce (OakPAC). In 2006, Schaaf became Public Affairs Director for the Port of Oakland. In 2010, Schaaf was elected to represent District 4 on the Oakland City Council.

The resolution was twice defeated.
