Oakland

RESPONSIVE TRUSTWORTHY GOVERNMENT

I have always fought to make Oakland a more transparent and responsive city – from holding community budget meetings across the city so that more Oaklanders have a say in how their tax dollars are spent to partnering with Code for America to make Oakland city government more transparent and user-friendly. As Mayor, I launched a 311 Call Center and Oak311 app to make it easier for Oaklanders to report problems and track how they’re fixed. We also created Oakland’s first intersection and street murals with our innovative community-based “Paint the Town” initiative. I will continue to make it easier for residents to report problems like potholes and broken street lights and hold managers accountable for fixing them. I will continue to prioritize getting Oakland on sound financial footing. My innovative Mobile Mayor program brings city hall to YOU.
