LOREN TAYLOR ANNOUNCES OAKLAND CITY COUNCIL DISTRICT 6 CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF
Community, Business, and Non-Profit Leader Has Already Raised Over $30,000
(Oakland, CA) – Today, Oakland community, business, and non-profit leader Loren Taylor announced his Campaign Kick-Off for his bid to bring much needed change to District 6 in the November election for Oakland City Council.
Taylor will launch his campaign at Lena’s Soul Food Café (6403 Foothill Blvd) on Saturday April 14, from 4 to 6 pm. He announced the event in an email blast to his supporters that also announced his new campaign website, www.LorenTaylor.org
“I’m no stranger to tackling tough challenges,” said Taylor, who is regularly brought in to solve complex policy problems for cities, businesses, and non-profits. “Oakland has our own share of challenges: storefronts boarded up in East Oakland, lack of jobs, skyrocketing housing costs, and a homelessness crisis. We need change, but many have lost faith in the ability of City Hall to create change. That’s why I’m running.”
On the Council, Taylor says he will “stop the pushing out and pricing out of long-term residents, aggressively fight to end homelessness, build more long-term affordable housing, expand economic opportunity for all, and support community policing that creates healthier relationships between our community and law enforcement.”
Taylor also announced his campaign has already raised over $30,000, a significant amount at this early stage in the race.
“I’m so honored by the showing of support we’ve already seen for new leadership that will make a difference in District 6,” he said.
