VOTE FOR TRI
MISSION AND VISION
These three issues are the cornerstones of my campaign's platform.
CREATE A RESPONSIVE AND ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT
Create an Oakland Citizen Engagement web portal that
Ensures rapid response for issues in neighborhood.
Enables ongoing Participatory budgeting allowing neighborhoods to vote on how city funds are spent.
Enable sourcing of funds for projects directly from community avoiding city bureaucracy, increasing efficiency and transparency.
online liquid democracy
District 1 citizens will be allowed to vote on every vote I make in the council
By default, citizen votes are delegated to me.
Citizen can choose to undelegate and vote directly.
Citizen can delegate their vote to anyone else, for example neighborhood association leader, advocacy group representative.
This system ensures a
small vocal minority
does not dominate decision making.
Enables us to build city wide political support for council proposals.
Allows citizens to submit, discuss, and vote on district and city wide proposals.
Centralizes all requests for citizen feedback on city and transportation plans.
Leadership of web portal will be comprised of citizens across the city. Eventually should not be controlled by the government to maintain independence.
Will be implemented using open source code to ensure future access and enables other municipalities to adopt the system.
Strengthen neighborhood associations in engaging with their members, getting their concerns and their positions on possible solutions.
Create a training program to build community leadership and future politicians.
Host frequent educational town halls to educate citizens on issues and possible solutions.
Create accountability by using multiple independent non-governmental organizations to regularly collect data on citizen satisfaction, engagement and publish regularly on the District 1 portal.
My performance should
be evaluated only once every 4 years, it should be
frequent and ongoing
