Mayor Jean Quan.

OAKLAND | MAYOR | Oakland Councilmember Dan Kalb is endorsing Mayor Jean Quan’s re-election this fall. Quan’s campaign made the announcement Tuesday.

“I am endorsing Jean Quan for mayor because her policies and hard work are getting results,” said Kalb, who represents North Oakalnd’s District 1 on the City Council.

Kalb outlined his reasoning for endorsing Quan over any one of the 14 challengers based upon her work for increasing funding for more police officers, the Mayor’s Summer Jobs Program, advocating for more affordable housing and moving Oakland toward environmentally-friendly policies, he said.

In addition, on Kalb’s own website, he went further in recommending voters choose fellow Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan as their second choice for mayor and Councilmember Libby Schaaf as third choice in the ranked choice voting election in November.
