Valley Link has
a friend in Bauer-Kahan
While many of us work remotely during COVID, this has been just a brief pause in the Bay Area’s normal transportation snarls. Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan supports transportation solutions that will connect people, housing and jobs — solutions that will eliminate hours spent every day in cars on crumbling roads, reduce poor air quality and improve quality of life.
Valley Link is the only viable green solution to connect the Central Valley and the Tri-Valley to the rest of the Bay Area. It will reduce the vehicle miles traveled each year by 99.4 million and hugely reduce greenhouse gases from commuters driving solo. Because Bauer-Kahan is committed to obtaining funding from Sacramento for Valley Link, I am voting for her to ensure a cleaner, brighter future for the Tri-Valley.
Prop. 16 will help state
achieve diversity goal
With election season upon us, the opportunity has arrived for a new generation of Asian Pacific Islanders to vote on restoring affirmative action in California.
Equity is necessary in education and the workplace. Proposition 16 aims to level the playing field to provide equal opportunities for minority groups. It is essential to use affirmative action as a method to increase diversity and inclusion.
However, as an Asian American myself, I feel it is necessary to connect our API selves to build and strengthen allyship and solidarity with Black, indigenous and people of color.
Proposition 16 is about more than just diversity, it is also about inclusion and it is something we should all strive to achieve today.
Asian Pacific Islanders for Affirmative Action
Bacon has credentials
on the environment
It’s said that people who care about animals and the environment comprise the single largest political lobby in the country.
Accordingly, I hereby encourage your support of Fremont City Councilmember Vinnie Bacon for Alameda County Supervisor, to replace retiring Scott Haggerty in District 1.
Bacon is a strong and effective proponent for the environment, open space and animal welfare. His surname notwithstanding, Bacon is a long-time vegetarian, and well aware of the negative impacts of animal agriculture on the environment and human health.
He has a BS in zoology, refuses to accept corporate monies, and has the endorsements of the Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters of the East Bay, Fremont Mayor Lily Mei and Oakland City Councilmember Dan Kalb. I strongly endorse Vinnie Bacon for Alameda County supervisor.
Vote for Jim Davis
for Antioch treasurer
I am proud to endorse Jim Davis as treasurer of the city of Antioch.
Jim is a class act. He is dignified, professional, knows money and city governance. I first met him 11 years ago when he worked in the banking industry and shared his expertise as Antioch’s mayor. I know him to be smart, honorable and able to connect with people across all levels of government and the community.
Perhaps the one memory of Jim which stands out most to me when it comes to his commitment to the people of Antioch is high-level meetings we attended in Washington, D.C., advocating for funding and legislation to support the economic growth of East Contra Costa.
From what I know of Jim, I believe he is the best candidate to serve in the role of treasurer and help Antioch move forward, securing opportunities and addressing challenges for Contra Costa County’s second-largest city.
Oakland, vote Kalb
for experience on council
I am not content with the state of our city’s financial health. I am not content with many situations happening in Oakland.
But I also realize that Oakland is a vibrant place that aspires to provide safety and equity for all residents. The challenges of a dynamic city like ours easily outstrip the budget allocations year after year.
I will be voting for Dan Kalb over his opponents because there is no time to expend on educating newcomers to the role of city governing. He is the only District 1 candidate with actual experience in policy-making and the government budget experience.
I don’t want my representative to be the newest person at the table as tough decisions need to be made on budgets that affect salaries, pensions, community safety and more. I encourage fellow voters to vote for City Councilmember Dan Kalb.
