Looking Back on More Than Twelve Years of Serving as Oakland’s City Attorney

Throughout this coming year, I’ll be reviewing my time in office, with an eye toward celebrating our team’s achievements as well as setting a high bar for my successor! As I’ve said before, launching and building the Affirmative Litigation, Enforcement and Innovation Division has been one of my proudest achievements as City Attorney. This Division has made a top priority of affirmative litigation and other actions to fight discrimination and to secure justice and equity for everyone who lives and/or works in Oakland. In just six years since I launched the Division, we have secured more than $48 million for the City through affirmative litigation. We shut down many human trafficking sites and secured millions of dollars to protect public health through lead paint abatement, provide housing justice, clean up toxic chemicals in our waterways, and remediate the devastating impacts of the opioid epidemic. I am excited about the work our team will accomplish in the coming years.
