Annie Campbell Washington Not Seeking Re-election As Oakland District 4 Councilmember
Councilmember Campbell Washington is stepping down January 19th 2019. She issued this letter two hours ago:
After 18 years of serving the Community that I love, the City of Oakland, I am announcing that I will not be seeking re-election to the Oakland City Council, District 4. This is a decision I have not come to lightly.
Although January 2019 will mark the end to my role as a City Councilmember, I will remain deeply involved and committed to Oakland. I’m excited to continue working on the Sweetened Beverage Tax, Oakland Promise and the Oakland Children’s Initiative, among others. I am thankful for the opportunities to serve the public in Oakland.
I am extremely grateful for all the work that has been accomplished during my term and for the phenomenal residents of District 4. I feel tremendously fortunate to have been able to work side by side with so many dedicated and talented Oaklanders.
In Service To Oakland, Annie
This is a shock, because she had no challenger for reelection. Thus, I wish her well and stand ready to help as a friend. Very sad day. via IFTTT
