BUILDING AN OAKLAND THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE
We have seen too many of our residents displaced by rising housing costs. We have passed by too many bleary-eyed homeless neighbors struggling on the streets. We have waited too long for our roads to be fixed.

I don’t believe our local government currently represents all of our people. I want to create a government that listens to and is accountable to everyone in our district.
I want to create a government that profoundly engages citizens by reducing barriers to political involvement.
I will create a government that encourages communication between neighbors because communication creates the understanding that enables real political power.
I am committed to this vision of government for our district of 57,000 citizens. On November 3rd, 2020 we will remake local government to represent the Will of the People.
