“Councilmember Kalb is a hard-working leader with a deep understanding of the ways public policy and budget decisions make a difference in people’s lives. When I look at what he’s accomplished for the people of Oakland, from securing dedicated funding for affordable housing to helping lead an effort to keep our kids in school to supporting improvements in public safety and police oversight, and much more, Dan has always delivered.

 

"There’s no one better to represent the people of District One than Dan Kalb.”

                                                                                 – Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf

Endorse Dan's Re-Election:

"...based on your stated and proven commitment to our mission and your 100% score... Thank you, again... for your stated supportive positions on issues important to reproductive freedom."  

  -Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte

"Dan is a principled voice of action on the City Council, and someone we've partnered with on affordable housing and homeless-ness, as well as violence prevention. He's strategic, smart, and an effective leader for Oakland."

    -Keith Carson, County Supervisor

"Dan Kalb knows how to turn big ideas into big results. And Dan's focused on what important like our housing affordability crisis, climate justice, the pandemic and wildfire risk."

    -State Senator Nancy Skinner

"Oakland renters trust Dan Kalb. He wrote the law that earmarked millions of dollars for affordable housing in Oakland. Dan also authored Oakland's groundbreaking Tenant Protection Ordinance together with multiple laws to strengthen the rights of renters. Top help tenants survive the pandemic, dan was a leader in the city's moratorium actions to prevent evictions. We need to keep a friend like Dan on the City Council."

    -James Vann, Oakland Tenants Union

"As a former District 1 Councilmember, I've seen Dan in action as a passionate and thoughtful leader on housing affordability, police oversight, and engaging with Oakland public schools. I appreciate his leadership and hard work on creating Oakland's Police Commission, standing up to fossil fuel interests and supporting public libraries. He has my full support for re-election."

  - Sheila Jordan, former D-1 City Councilmember and past County Superintendent of Schools
