Friends--

Our campaign continues to build momentum as we race towards Saturday’s critical fundraising reporting deadline.

Today I am thrilled to announce that Oakland Vice Mayor Annie Campbell Washington has joined Mayor Libby Schaaf, former Mayor Jean Quan, Pastors J. Alfred Smith, Jr. and Javier Ramos, and a host of others in endorsing our campaign.

In endorsing us, Vice Mayor Campbell Washington said:

“Loren Taylor is the change we need. He’s spent decades taking on tough challenges around health, homelessness, and economic empowerment, many of the same challenges Oakland faces today. He’s also shown where his heart is by giving back and making a difference for numerous local non-profits. He’s a loving husband, father, mentor, and tireless community leader. His deep Oakland roots, passion for our city, and record of results will make him an excellent Councilmember for District 6.”
