Celebrating Oakland Pride

As we stand together for the civil rights deserved by all people, we continue to send the message that Oakland is a place for tolerance, unity, and respect. For those who have known me for many years and those who have or will come to know me through this election, you know that these are values I hold deeply personal and will lead with should I be elected your next mayor of Oakland.

Announcing the Bryan Parker Two Cities Tour

For too long, Oakland – our nation’s shining example of diversity – has been too easily divided by City Hall leaders. City Hall has failed to unite us from the Hills to the Flats, from East to West Oakland. This past week we launched “The House Divided” video, which has received wide acclaim for its “visually stunning” ability to highlight the division and ineffectiveness in City Hall, yet the resilient beauty of Oakland.

Contra Costa Times Op-ed: Oakland Candidate Parker Looks Good for City

Recently, I had an opportunity to listen to some candidates for Oakland mayor. Bryan Parker was one of them, and I was impressed.

Finally, not a politician. Well educated, has a law and business management background, and he is a member of the Oakland Port Commission, a vital income producer for Oakland.

But more important than money raised is the fact that our message is resonating. Everywhere we turn – in the flats or the hills, North Oakland, the Lower Bottoms, or East Oakland, Oaklanders tell us they are hungry for change.

Hillary Clinton’s Visit: Oakland Too Important to Fail

Presumed 2016 Democratic Presidential front-runner, Hillary Clinton, visited Oakland today. She spoke at noon at Children’s Hospital in Oakland. As part of a literacy campaign sponsored by the Clinton Foundation, former Secretary Clinton spoke to the importance of parents talking, singing and reading to their young children. The broader message Secretary Clinton’s visit signals to the nation is that Oakland is important to the national conversation.

Welcome Superintendent Antwan Wilson

None of us in Oakland city leadership can solve the city’s problems alone. Partnering with OUSD and major education stakeholders to achieve high performing public schools is one of the four key education priorities I would pursue as mayor. Additionally, I would work with OUSD leadership to increase graduation rates, support African American and Hispanic male achievement, and obtain and create new funding streams.

San Francisco Chronicle: Oakland Mayor Candidate Bryan Parker Sees Bitcoin Paying Off

For Oakland mayoral candidate Bryan Parker, technology is a solution to many of the East Bay city’s woes. Parker, who entered the tech industry over a decade ago as senior director of finance at security software firm iPass, sees bitcoin as a way to address poverty and crowdfunding as a means of increasing financing for civic development. He favors analytics to maximize the efficiency of Oakland’s understaffed police force and improve education in the city’s classrooms.
