This week, Catalina Byrd, a long-time political commentator and former mayoral candidate formally declared she will make another run for Mayor of Baltimore in the Republican primary.

“Baltimore is at a pivotal moment that will write the next chapter in our history,” Byrd told the AFRO.

“I’m running with a sense of urgency not to rebrand Baltimore as so many before me have, but instead to actually change Baltimore, especially for those who have been left behind by the actions of my predecessors,” she added.

“I have a solid vision and strategy to make Baltimore the best it’s ever been for all and not just the select few.”

Look for more on Byrd’s mayoral candidacy at afro.com, and next week’s edition of the AFRO.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
