Dellums victory signifies a sea change in Oakland politics


Oakland made history this weekend electing my good friend Ron Dellums as Mayor of Oakland.

I have known Ron for 30 years, and have seen first hand what he has done in Congress to advocate for the core values of the Democratic Party, revitalize downtown Oakland, promoting economic growth at the Oakland Port, securing funding for essential services and protecting the environment.

Kudos to the voters of Oakland and Ron Dellums for running a positive campaign that promotes a better future for all of us in the Easy Bay.
