Oakland Police Officers Announced Their Endorsement of Pam Harris for Oakland City Council.

OAKLAND – The Oakland Police Officers’ Association is proud to endorse Pam Harris as their sole choice for the open Oakland City Council District Four seat.

“Pam Harris embodies Oakland’s strength and diversity and is the leader to champion the need of every Oakland resident,” said Oakland Police Officers’ Association President Barry Donelan, in announcing the endorsement.

Pam Harris serves as an Assembly District 18 Delegate in the California Democratic Party, and is a former board member of the East Bay Stonewall Democratic Club. Her community organizing and service have earned her the Mildred Parish Massey Legacy Award from Congresswoman Barbara Lee, and a Social Justice Champion Award from California Assembly Member Rob Bonta.
In response to the endorsement Pam said, “I approach this as the beginning of a relationship. A relationship where officers are treated with the equity that all workers in our city deserve. A relationship that can serve as a foundation for creating an Oakland where all are safe, welcome, and know that they matter. Working together, I know that we can do what it takes to rebuild trust between our community and those sworn to protect and serve.”

“Oakland Police Officers are proud to join the Sierra Club, our California State Assembly Member Rob Bonta, and current District Four City Council Member Annie Campbell-Washington in endorsing Pam Harris for City Council, as she shares the vocation for service of Oakland’s finest,” concluded Donelan.
