Welcome, and thanks for joining us. My name is Rebecca Kaplan and I serve as City Councilmember At-Large, elected citywide in Oakland. I will be up for re-election November 2016. I am honored to have the opportunity to work to get illegal guns off the streets of Oakland, strengthen housing for all income levels, improve our transit, pedestrian and bicycle safety and more. On this website you can sign up to join us, volunteer or donate, read news clips, and see our latest posts, and my recommendations on ballot measures. Please join us, and be a part of the solution.
East Bay Express: “She’s been a consistent voice for social and economic justice and easily deserves another term on the council.”
Oakland Magazine: “Kaplan is a smart, capable public official who has served on the council since 2008 and has put together another impressive year in 2016.”
This was a tough election to swallow nationally. The good news is that locally we made progress on renter protections, police accountability, and keeping our kids healthy. Join me as we debrief on the election and discuss what we can continue to do to protect and strengthen Oakland. We will have a happy hour at Crossburgers in Frank Ogawa Plaza across from City Hall. Please buy your tickets here and help me pay off my final campaign bills and move into my next term with strength.
You can also RSVP to Kameron McNeal at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 510-221-0552. Look forward to seeing you there!
