Metropolitan-Greater Oakland (MGO) Democratic Club March 14, 2023 Program Announcement:A Conversation with Libby Schaaf, Former Oakland Mayor and Current Director of Emerge California
|Dear MGO Members and Friends:|
Libby Schaaf, who served as mayor of Oakland from 2015 to 2022 and is now the current interim director of Emerge California, will join us to talk about Emerge’s history, accomplishments and goals.
According to its website, Emerge California has trained and recruited over 800 women Democratic women leaders to run for elected office since 2002. It claims to have over 200 alums currently serving in elected positions. They include California’s Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, State Controller Malia Cohen, State Assemblymember Mia Bonta whose district includes Oakland, and San Francisco Mayor London Breed.
We also invited Mayor Schaaf to share her personal views about the general direction and paths she would like to see Oakland take over the next few years.
In the MGO tradition, there will be time for questions and answers.
