District 1 City Council candidates take questions from Oakland residents
on November 6, 2012
From Fruitvale to Rockridge, Oakland North reporters spoke recently to residents about the city council elections. We asked everyone the same question: If you could speak directly to the candidates, what would you like to know?
We delivered the most frequent of the residents’ questions, in person to the seven candidates for the District 1 City Council seat. Their edited answers, one question at a time, will appear in Oakland North every week between now and Election Day.
Sam Rolens, Charles Berkowitz, Steve Fisher, Titania Kumeh and Aaron Mendelson contributed to this report.
