Teachers Endorse Tapscott for School Board District 7




Ben “Coach” Tapscott

Oakland teachers union, Oakland Education Association (O.E.A.), has endorsed Ben “Coach” Tapscott for Board of Education in District 7.

“We need a school board that stands with students and families – not billionaires and corporations,” said the union in a published statement.

“Billionaires have spent over $1.2 million in the last four Board of Education elections, buy8ing a board that voted to close neighborhood public schools, caused financial ruin for our district, and created a teacher retention crisis,” the statement said.

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, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
