Thu Jan 16 2014 Siegel Campaign Goes Against the Tide of Law-and-Order Politicians in Oakland
Siegel Campaign Goes Against the Tide of Law-and-Order Politicians in Oakland Civil rights attorney Dan Siegel announced his candidacy for mayor of Oakland on January 9 before a crowd of well over 100 supporters in Oscar Grant plaza at the corner of 14th & Broadway. Siegel spelled out an ambitious agenda focused on social and economic justice should he be elected mayor of Oakland. He wants a $15 minimum wage, public schools to develop into community centers, neighborhood gardens to flourish throughout the city, Oakland police to stop abusing citizens, and the Domain Awareness Center to be shut down.

The ballot for the November 2014 election for Mayor of Oakland continues to grow. As of now, it includes Oakland’s current mayor Jean Quan, District Four councilmember Libby Schaaf, Port of Oakland Commissioner Bryan Parker, SF State University professor Joe Tuman, tax accountant Nancy Sidebotham, and neighborhood crime hero/vigilante Patrick McCullough.
