Please Vote for Measure R. The City of Oakland, like many local governments, has public notices that are required to be published in a newspaper, to provide important information to the community.
Unfortunately, for many years, full community access in Oakland has suffered, due to an out-of-date law still on the books that designated Oakland’s official “newspaper of record” to be required to have daily circulation of over 25,000, and is supposed to be locally published.
Over the years, with changes in the media landscape and corporate mergers, we no longer have a local newspaper that meets the requirements of the old law. As a result, notices are being posted in non-local media, owned by out-of-state corporations, and failing to meet the full diversity and access for our community.
Also, please join me to vote for Measure C to support high-quality child care and health care for Alameda County children.
Measure C will:
• Expand access to high quality child care for all Alameda County families.
• Attract and retain excellent early educators to provide better care for our kids.
• Help to create access to early pediatric health care for all Alameda County kids.
• Support the Pediatric Trauma Center In Oakland to stay open and be staffed.
