Local Friends Running for Political Office

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:


San Francisco:

Matt Haney – School Board

Paul Henderson – Superior Court Judge

London Breed – Board of Supervisors


East Bay:

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!

Don’t forget to vote on November 4th!

You Don't Understand the Problem

[October 30, 2014]  OAKLAND.  This mid-term election is critical for our country’s future.  Rather than complaining and whining about the state of our communities, our schools, our taxes, the environment, etc., here is our opportunity to show up and make a difference.  Electing our representatives and leaders is our civic duty and we should be proud to exercise it.  The deadline has passed to mail in absentee ballots, however, it is not too late to vote in person.  November 4, 2014 is the mid-term election day in California, so if you do not know where your polling place is, please visit to input your home address to find out.

Since I am The Social Politician ™, I work tirelessly for my clients to effectively disseminate their message and reach as many potential voters as possible.  Unfortunately, I do not have any clients running in this particular election, so for the most part, I have been sitting on the sidelines until I am retained.  Nevertheless, I have many friends and colleagues running in this election, so like I have done in the past, please see their campaign websites, make donations/contributions to their campaigns if you feel compelled, and give the best candidate your vote!
