As the 2018 Mayoral and City Council campaigns heat up, Transport Oakland is working to identify and endorse candidates who support the organization’s commitment to transportation policies that bring livability, vitality, sustainability, and equity to Oakland.
We are forming endorsement committees for the Oakland Mayoral, City Council, BART, and AC Transit races. We need members who live in these districts or who want to get involved in these races to join a endorsement committee and help us select candidates.
Here’s what endorsement committee members will get to do:
|Review Candidate Answers to TO Questionnaire||Week of August 20|
|Interview Candidates||Weeks of August 20th, 27th, and September 3rd|
|Participate in deliberations with Transport Oakland Board members and supporters to decide who to endorse||Week of September 3rd|
Transport Oakland will directly support endorsed candidates during the Fall election by showing up for candidate field events, including canvassing and phone banking. Let’s show candidates who share our mobility values that Transport Oakland will support them with our most valuable contribution: our time.
