Dear Friends -
In my two terms on the Oakland City Council, we've accomplished a lot together, but there is more work to be done. I am running for re-election in 2020, because I know we can build on what we've accomplished to help more of our neighbors rise and thrive.
From our shared fight for racial justice to the COVID-19 public health crisis to helping our small businesses recover in the current recession, the challenges we face require steady, determined, and focused leadership.
Already, dozens of community leaders and local officials have united behind my campaign, because they know I mean what I say; I do my homework; and I focus on what actually makes a difference. I hope to earn your support too.
Thank you for everything you do to make Oakland the town we love, and I hope to see you soon.
With deep appreciation,
District One City Councilmember DAN KALB is running for re-election in 2020. He's worked hard for the past several years and has developed a reputation as an effective local legislator with a strong record of accomplishments.
We invite you to show your support.
Oakland Magazine in 2016 named Dan as the “most effective member of the eight-person Council. He’s smart, pro-environment, and a good government legislator who knows how to get things done. Indeed, his list of accomplishments over the past four years is unmatched in Oakland.”
Dan received the Outstanding Elected Official award in 2015 from California Public Library Advocates for “his far-reaching efforts on behalf of the Oakland Public Library.”
Dan was recognized as the Good Government Politician of the Year by the East Bay Express in 2014: “Politicians who claim to support open government and transparency are a dime a dozen. But Oakland Councilmember Dan Kalb stands apart: He not only advocates for good government policies, but he actually drafts proposals and works to turn them into law.”
