Position Papers
My 15 Point Public Safety Plan-July 20, 2012
If Public Safety is our number ONE priority then we need more than catchy phrases and political posturing. We need a comprehensive plan that leverages our existing resources and does a good job at connecting the dots.
My 10 Point Plan to Create Jobs in Six Months in Oakland-April 17, 2012
As your next District 3 City Councilmember, I will be the first elected official with an entrepreneurial business background since Frank Ogawa (56 years ago).
My 8 Point Plan to Transform Oakland into a World Destination for the Arts-August 1, 2012
If we are serious about Oakland's economic development, it is imperative that we begin by leveraging all our existing assets. The Oakland Industrial Arts community has been neglected and overlooked as a significant catalyst for economic development. The City of Oakland must adopt a comprehensive plan to incentivize, promote, and protect the Arts community. I know we can become the next world destination for the Arts.
