Oakland News Now
The objective is to give Oaklanders a blog voice, while at the same time forming the reader with an idea of what’s on the minds of the people who live in our diverse city. This is the total group of Oaklanders who are signed up as bloggers here at Oakland News Online:
At present, we’re proud to announce that three of the authors are involved directly in the 2018 Oakland Mayoral Election: Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, and challengers Jesse Smith, and Saied Kamarooz.
If there’s someone you want to see as part of our group, tell us about them, and provide their email contact information, so we can reach out to them.
