¡Una Campaña Accionado por la Gente!



Dear Oakland Voter,


     I was raised in Oakland and graduated from Oakland Public Schools. I'm also a wife and mother.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development, a Master’s Degree in Public Administration, and a Teaching Credential.  I have a proven track record of leadership, community advocacy and commitment to public service.
      I have served the citizens of Oakland on the Oakland School Board.  I took the District out of State Receivership, left it with a $10 million surplus in 1997, and created quality neighborhood schools.  I am a small business owner, educator, and founder/volunteer of Oakland Civic Pride -a youth civic leadership program; and a former nonprofit executive where I created jobs for Oakland residents.

     As your Councilmember At-Large, I will continue to work to make Oakland a great place to live, work, and grow! I will tackle the issues of public safety, jobs, quality neighborhood schools, recreational services for our youth, business growth, home ownership, and preserving the environment.

     Allowing Oakland to be the most dangerous city in California is unacceptable. You deserve better. Vote for me on November 6 and I will be your voice at City Hall!

Stand with me for...  
  • Integrity, Access, and Accountability in City Government 
  • Public Safety 
  • Quality Neighborhood Schools 
  • Sustainable Communities 
  • Home Ownership and Affordable Housing 
  • Living Wage Jobs for Oakland Residents 
  • Business Friendly Environment 
  • Recreational Services for Our Youth 
  • Equitable Services for the Elderly and Disabled 
  • Keeping Our Tax Dollars in Oakland!
