Keeping Citizens Relevant In Politics
This Election is "special" in that it will define whether we can retain a strong balance of power between the "strong mayor" and the City Council. More than anytime in our political history, how we vote will determine whether citizens in Oakland will be relevant to the political process or become spectators within that process.
From Oakland, For Oakland
A Proven Leader with a Long History of Volunteerism and Community Service in Oakland
A Tale From the Neighborhoods in District 2 - Down Memory Lane
Growing up in District 2 neighborhoods gives me a deep appreciation for the heritage of Oakland and an understanding of the people who have made Oakland their home. This up-close and intimate account of my experiences in Oakland from the 50's forward can provide voters with some insight into who I am and why it is important that a local person with a long commitment and roots in Oakland should go to City Hall to set public policy.
