WDRC Coordinating Committee member Pamela Drake writes on her blog “DrakeTalk” about the Oakland Mayor’s race, Aug. 20th, 2018: The Oakland We Knew and the Oakland Mayor’s Race. Her ranked recommendations for mayor: 1) Cat Brooks, 2) Pamela Price, 3) Saied Karamooz.
We’ve got two terrific candidates for the 15th Assembly District: Jovanka Beckles and Buffy Wicks. Please take a look at both the platform and the endorsements for each of these candidates at their websites and social media links below.
- Jovanka Beckles.
Since there’s no club meeting this month we’re skipping the coordinating committee meeting normally held the first Monday of the month. See you at the picnic on July 29th! We are having a special coordinating committee meeting on July 30 to help prep for the endorsement meeting in August.
