Priorities

I have the experience, commitment and work ethic to get things done. Together, we can make Oakland better and more equitable for all residents. My priorities will continue to be working towards creating a Safe, Clean, Healthy Oakland with effective public safety, affordable housing, effective homeless services, business development and job preservation, better schools, and facilitation of a strong COVID-19 recovery.

Public Safety

Implement the Citizens’ Police Commission; re-imagine public safety to strengthen safety and equity to community services, addressing mental health, homelessness, human tracking and neighborhood safety; improve pedestrian/ transportation safety.

Housing

Increase production of affordable and workforce units. Continue to advocate for infill development incentives and expedited permit approvals.

Effective Homeless Services

Advocate for production of housing and shelter programs and essential recovery support services.

Transportation

Improve neighborhood pedestrian safety by continuing to install more stop lights, crosswalks and bike lanes. Repave neighborhood streets and large corridors to improve transit safety.

Business Development & Jobs

Retain, attract and invest in our diverse neighborhood business corridors to ensure residents have workforce opportunities and access to services and goods. 

COVID-19 Recovery:

Facilitate neighborhood access to testing, community and business education, digital education resources, food distribution and housing support.
