The Oakland Magazine has endorsed Rebecca Kaplan for At-Large City Council. They call her a “smart, capable elected official”.
Here are a couple excerpts from the endorsement:
“We wholeheartedly endorse the reelection of Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan to her At-Large seat in the Nov. 8 election. Kaplan is a smart, capable public official who has served on the council since 2008 and has put together another impressive year in 2016.”
“…where we really agree with Kaplan is her longtime advocacy for smart growth, also known as transit-oriented development. Kaplan was among the first East Bay public officials to push for building dense housing projects along major transit corridors in urban areas in order to curb suburban sprawl and greenhouse-gas-belching commutes. She’s also a powerful supporter of creating bike- and pedestrian-friendly streets.”
