As your City Councilmember since 2013, I have worked hard to make Oakland safer, more prosperous, more compassionate and more affordable, while bringing District One communities together. After more than 25 years as an advocate for good government reforms and meaningful policy, it has been an honor to make strong public policy on your behalf.
I have sponsored and fought for legislation to increase funding for affordable housing and create new protections for tenants, expand crime reduction efforts and increase funding for additional crime investigators, require safe storage of guns in homes and cars, ban the handling and storage of coal in Oakland, create a new partnership with OUSD to reduce chronic absenteeism in our public schools, strengthen the authority of Oakland’s Public Ethics Commission, provide additional funding to expand library services, and much more.
Oakland is a wonderful place to live, but there are many challenges facing our city. I continue to focus on enacting policies and solving problems through innovation and hard work. I work to improve each neighborhood in North Oakland and be your champion in city government. I remain committed to listening to your concerns, solving problems with determination and innovation, and staying true to my strong sense of integrity and public service. I value your input and encourage you to contact me and sign up for my e-newsletter.
I am honored to serve the residents of District One and our entire city. Thank you so much!
Oakland City Councilmember - District One
