This unique moment demands a different kind of leader. We need a Councilmember who understands the struggles of the most vulnerable, has a proven ability to transform lives for those who need it most, and who’s ready to help lead Oakland’s recovery and then tackle the many challenges that have faced our community for too long.
I’m running for all those left behind, those who’re struggling, those who’re going to be hit hardest by this health and economic crisis, because they’re my family, and my community.” —Derreck Johnson
