    As an Oakland resident for 15 years, I’m pleased to find out that Oakland North exists.

    Special thanks to reporter, Sofia Memo, for stopping by the Oakland for Hillary campaign headquarters on 11/8…She and another reporter were there taking photographs and interviewing volunteers on the eve of this historic election.

    After a divisive 2016 campaign in which truth was distorted by the words of a serial liar who has become our next President(!), UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism is more important than ever.

    I look forward to following you, Oakland North~Thank YOU for what your commitment to the next generation of truth seeking reporters.
