Public land should not be transferred to private use. Berkeley should work at the state and regional level to find solutions for RV dwellers.
Public financing was used for the first time in Berkeley during the November 2018 election and the Fair Practices Campaign Commission is still dealing with violations from various races.
No one might have predicted Berkeley's District 8 City Council race would feature so much discord.

She has been a successful attorney, giving her the skill set to balance being be a fierce advocate and a collaborative partner with City Council colleagues.
