Natasha Middleton, candidate for Oakland City Council District 6, announced the endorsement today of California State Assemblymember Tony Thurmond.
“I enthusiastically endorse Natasha Middleton for Oakland City Council, District 6,” said Assemblymember Thurmond. “As a former city councilmember with two terms in the state legislature, I can say with confidence that Oakland needs policy-focused leaders like Natasha Middleton to partner with state and regional leaders to solve our complex problems.”
“It is a special honor to have earned Assemblymember Tony Thurmond’s endorsement,” said Middleton. “His work on behalf of families, children, and the most vulnerable among us is inspiring. His laser focus on improving public education for all Californians is unparalleled. Oakland has benefitted from the Assemblymember’s leadership and I am proud to have his support.”
Middleton is the only candidate for District 6 to have earned the endorsement of the entire California legislative delegation representing Oakland: State Senator Nancy Skinner, State Assemblymember Rob Bonta and State Assemblymember Tony Thurmond.
