Organizer/AuthorVicente Cruz
Independent from the status quo politicians and their financial backers, a group of open-minded individuals has started a campaign to run a complete progressive ticket for all open seats in the 2012 Oakland general election.

Our platform will include:

· A city wide commitment to well rounded high quality education for all.
· A refusal to diminish libraries, parks or any other civic services.
· A commitment to confronting the crisis facing our youth in crime, education and employment.
· Getting an equal share of federal, county and state tax dollars to those who need it most.
· Community policing from the actual community and restorative justice in lieu of revolving door jails.
· A complete budgeting reform including a new tax structure based on ability to pay.
· A commitment to Arts, Music and Sports Community Programs for All of Oakland.
· Electoral reform that gives everyone representation and gets rid of the gerrymandered districts. .

Come be a part of the solution! Join us at our next meeting Wed. June 22nd. 6 to 8:30 PM.
The subject will be the 2012 Oakland local elections and the proposals to form an
Oakland Progressive Alliance. at 3528 Foothill Boulevard, Oakland, CA 94601
Our meetings are pot luck. Bring some food if you can. Eat some if you feel hungry.
