Take a Fresh Look at Oakland

Things are shaping up in Oakland as Mayor Jean Quan starts off working on her priorities -not just words but actions-, as mentioned during her inaugural speech at the Fox Theater.

1. Children, Youth & Education
2. Jobs
3. Shop in Oakland

I wonder if the current Mayor will be the one who gets Macy’s, Targé 😉 and other large retailers open a store in downtown so that many Oaklanders have more choices for shopping in Oakland.

Meanwhile, Mayor Quan is recruiting 2,000 volunteers to mentor youth and get connected to other community causes. If you wish to volunteer, please call the Office of the Mayor at (510) 238-3141 or reply with your name, email and/or phone number, and the area where you live, and I will be happy to pass your information to the Mayor’s Office.

Take a Fresh Look at Oakland is the Mayor’s motto and has become the city’s slogan.
