As a 3rd generation Oaklander, I am frustrated that the benefits of our city’s growth have not translated to improved city services and improved opportunities for Oakland residents. The growing lack of confidence that residents have in city leaders to improve Oakland is well-deserved and has merit. Why do the same leaders get re-elected for decades when their districts don't improve?

My Vision:

I believe Oakland deserves more and refuse to settle for the 'status quo'  

  • All Oaklanders deserve health, economic, and housing security

  • All Oaklanders should benefit from the economic growth to the City regardless of the neighborhood in which they live

  • All Oaklanders should be able to create better lives for themselves and their children


My Plan:

I am running for Oakland City Council District 6 to apply my business and community leadership experience to achieve results for East Oakland residents

  • Restore integrity and a focus on results to the City Council

  • Attract, incubate, and grow businesses in Oakland that employ and serve Oaklanders

  • Build strong partnerships between government, nonprofits, and businesses

  • Fight relentlessly for all Oaklanders, especially those who have been neglected in District 6
