It's time to believe in Oakland again.
Oakland can be safe — protecting our people with cops in our community, lessening gun violence, building a responsive 911 system, and implementing smart community-based crime prevention.
Oakland can provide high-quality public schools, and stop the truancy epidemic.
Oakland can create new jobs and a thriving economy. This is one of the most innovative and creative places on earth. We are going to open our doors to the small businesses and growing industries that will support good jobs and help our neighborhoods flourish.
Oakland government can be transparent, innovative, and efficient. We need budgets that are accessible, understandable, and accountable to the citizens. And we must start delivering the essential services such as road repair and maintenance that will ensure our community thrives.
Oakland can achieve its promise — Oakland can, and I know Oakland will.
