Why this race is important
Oakland is divided into seven districts. Each district has one Councilmember with a four-year term. In addition, one City Council member is elected by the whole city, “at large.” The Council sets policy for City departments, can change local laws (called ordinances) for things like zoning, permits and licenses or local taxes. The City Council approves City contracts and the City budget. For more information:https://www.oaklandca.gov/topics/city-of-oakland-government-101)
Translation in Spanish and Cantonese will be available.
A recording of the event will be posted on the League of Women Voters of Oakland website.
