"I am supporting Steph for City Council because I know the critical importance of leadership that is representative of those we serve.

In this time of Covid19, all the ugly inequities in our society are being magnified, and I believe Steph can help to close these gaping holes by serving all citizens of Oakland because she truly cares and knows the importance."
