Preparing for November: MOBN!’s early endorsement process for City Attorney

MOBN! is beginning the early endorsement process for the 2012 City Attorney’s race. To view our official announcement, click here to be directed to our website. To read about MOBN!’s endorsement process and protocol, click here.

In 2010, MOBN! solicited written questionnaires from all of the mayoral candidates. Their responses were posted on makeoaklandbetternow.org, making MOBN! the only organization to publicly post questionnaires submitted to the mayoral candidates (these questionnaire responses can still be viewed, here). In 2012, we will continue this practice, but extend the questionnaires to include candidates for City Attorney as well as City Council.

To begin this early endorsement process for the City Attorney race, we have sent questionnaires to City Attorney Barbara Parker and Council Member Jane Brunner, the two known candidates. Any other declared City Attorney candidates are welcome to participate in this process (please contact Lisa Radigonda). Questionnaire responses are due July 6.

When endorsing candidates, MOBN!, as always, focuses on three main issues impacting Oaklanders:

1.) Public safety

2.) Public works, including public streets, parks, lighting, and libraries

3.) Ensuring city government transparency and accountability

With this early endorsement process, MOBN! hopes to empower independent voters in Oakland.

  1. Aha! The LIttle League of Women Voters! To your teacakes, ladies!

  2. For Jane Brunner’s answers on Public Safety, please compare her spoken points to what she has done in the years as a Council Representative to get a better picture of her ideology.

  3. Good point Mark. MO is giving Brunner’s campaign a big publicity boost. Hopefully MO will make an attempt to season her BS with just a smidge of reality.
