In a year-end message, incoming District 4 Rep Libby Schaaf has invited everyone to the city-wide inauguration. All the newly elected officials, including Schaaf, will be sworn in next Monday at 11am, at the Fox Theater. The event is free and open to Oaklanders, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Meanwhile, the transition seems to be moving swimmingly. Jean Quan is focused on staffing up the Oakland mayoral team over the holidays, effectively handing District 4 to Schaaf. We have also seen Schaaf dipping her toes in the water, by addressing a safety matter or two on the local Montclair Safety & Improvement Council (MSIC) message board.
Starting January 3rd, Rep Schaaf will be located on the second floor at City Hall. She’s available at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 238-7004. Her council aide, Jenny Feinberg, may be reached anytime at email@example.com.
