Dear friends and readers,
This blog will be on hiatus until the election on November 2, 2010. I have accepted a position with Rebecca Kaplan’s campaign for Mayor of Oakland, and I cannot fully aid her exciting campaign if I continue to post my thoughts about public policy. I will spend the next four months helping spread her message of change at City Hall, and in order to help her get Oakland back on track, I have to work for her message and not my own (though of course they align quite a bit).
It has been incredibly rewarding to join civic life these last four years. Working for Rebecca Kaplan is a chance to see Oakland embrace its future as a transit-oriented, prosperous, and healthy community.
