With all of the hustle and bustle/controversy over this nation’s presidential election, it is easy to lose sight of the local elections that are also very important. Rather than focus on particular races, I am going to share with you some of my personal friends who are running for office. Please take a look at their platforms and if so moved and you live in the appropriate district, cast your vote accordingly:
Matt Haney – School Board
Paul Henderson – Superior Court Judge
London Breed – Board of Supervisors
James Vaughn – Tracy Unified School Board
Mister Phillips – West Contra Costa School Board
Lateefah Simon – BART Board
Rochelle Pardue-Okimoto – El Cerrito City Council
Peggy Moore – Oakland City Council at Large
Rebecca Kaplan – Oakland City Council at Large
Marcie Hodge – Oakland City Council District 7
Lynette Gibson McElhaney – Oakland City Council District 3.
Uche J. Uwahemu – Richmond City Council
It takes a lot of guts to put your money where you mouth is, roll up your sleeves, and dedicate your life to be a public servant. They all should be applauded.
And don’t forget to vote for Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton! Get out the Vote!
