Public Health & Saftey

Oakland cannot progress until we have taken control of our crime problem, particularly in the toughest neighborhoods where violence is rampant.


I will work with faith communities, residents and the Oakland Police Department to champion the successful implementation of a Ceasefire/ Lifelines to Healing strategy in West Oakland and work with schools and the parks and recreation department to support upstream solutions to prevent crime.


I will also support our Business Improvement Districts by helping them provide private security to augment scarce police resources.  I will work to increase funding for public safety.
