Dear Neighbors

I am supporting Jean Quan for Oakland Mayor in 2010 because she's smart, tough, passionate about Oakland and gets real results through hard work.

Building community block by block, Jean Quan has served Oakland with integrity, a tenacious spirit to dig deep into the issues that are important to us, and unwavering dedication to our communities. Oakland needs a Mayor who trule understands our city, and Jean has been an active Oakland resident for over 30 years. She knows this city, and, most importantly, knows how to get things done ad make real change working together with our communities.

Please join us to hear how Jean Quan will make a difference in Oakland as our very first woman Mayor! She is not for sale, and wants to end backroom pay-to-play politcs in City Hall. Jean has always stood for equity and will develop policies that will benefit families, seniors, and young people in our city.

Come to this informal coffee with Jean to talk about the future of our neighborhood and city on Wednesday, March 24, 7-8:30 p.m. at The Old Crow Tattoo, 362 Grand Avenue. If you will join us, please RSVP to iwinogrond@yahoo.com. To learn more about Jean and her work, check out and subscribe to her acclaimed newsletter www.jeanquan.org.
