Why I'm Running for Oakland City Council, District 4
A 27-year resident of Oakland and 13-year brick & mortar small business owner in the City of Oakland – I am Oakland's Advantage. We don't need another politician in City Hall. We need someone with real life Oakland experience who is desperate for change.
Effective leadership does not wait for Town Halls to determine the issues. As a small business owner I've lived the problems that Oaklanders struggle with every day -- trash removal, burglaries, violent crime, dangerous traffic -- and am now ready to work on behalf of all D4 residents to streamline Oakland's service model to be actionable and measurable. Let's actually fix these problems instead of just talking about them!
I'm running for Oakland City Council, District 4 because I believe that with energy and effort:
• All our neighborhoods can be clean and safe;
• All our schools can be excellent;
• We can welcome businesses and artists and grow vibrant, diverse neighborhoods;
• We can deliver responsive, high quality city services to everyone living, playing and doing
business in Oakland.
