In the coming months, MOBN! will be publishing its endorsement protocols for the non-partisan November, 2012 Oakland Election, which are still in development. At this time, however, the MOBN! Board is proud to endorse Frank Castro and Jill Broadhurst for the District 15 Democratic Central Committee.
District 15 includes significant amounts of West Contra Costa County, Piedmont Albany and Berkeley as well as North Oakland. Voters elect 9 members, and there are 11 candidates on the upcoming June 5 ballot. We believe it is important that North Oakland be well-represented on the committee, which is active in recruiting candidates and campaign contributions for Democratic Party races.
Frank is a MOBN! board member and MOBN!’s Director of Communications. He is also chair of the Greater Rockridge NCPC, a member of the Community Policing Advisory Board and a member of the Neighborhood Watch Steering Committee. Jill is the chair of the Montclair Safety Improvement Council, Montclair’s NCPC. She is a former Vice-Chair of the Oakland Library Commission and Keep Oakland Beautiful board member. Both Frank and Jill are long-time North Oakland advocates for public safety, the most critical issue faced by our city.
MOBN! urges all Oaklanders who care about public safety to vote for Frank Castro and Jill Broadhurst for Assembly District 15 Democratic Central Committee.
