Cat Brooks joined us this Monday Meals to breakdown the final election results and talk about what the results mean for the future of Oakland. What will it mean to have a progressive leaning mayor and a progressive majority in City Council?

“Investing in prevention is going to reduce crime in the city of Oakland. Protecting housing for our most vulnerable and marginalized are going to make Oakland streets safer. Mayor-elect Thao has talked about the hiring blitz, staffing our city departments is going to mean the trash gets picked up. So all of the things that progressives have been pushing for, so long as Sheng sticks to the progressive program, then we’re going to see the results.” -Cat Brooks
