Meron Semedar for Oakland City Council, District 3
I will run a people's campaign. I'm committed to listening to members of the community. I will visit our neighborhoods, listen to your concerns, ideas and engage with you on the day to day activities of the City Council. I will not be bought by corporations. When you elect me to the City Council Office - I will not be complicit with the current policies of Oakland, but rather bring what is best for our community by working together. I'm a strong believer that we can make District 3 and Oakland a thriving city for all.
I was raised by this principle and continue to live by it; when something is not right don't wait for tomorrow, instead try to fix it immediately. I am determined to do what is necessary about the housing crisis, homelessness, and reshaping policing so that we protect our communities and safeguard the culture of our beloved city.

15 years of community organizing, activism, human rights and immigration advocacy. As a refugee, and now a proud US citizen, I bring unique skills, experience influencing local and international policy, and solving problems that will uplift our community in District 3 and the greater Oakland area.
Your support and contribution will enable us to reach out to all members of the District 3 constituency. I pledge to listen to your input, what is important to you, and champion our collective agenda to improve the quality of life in District 3 and Oakland. My thanks for your support in advance.
