Dear neighbor,

As a West Oakland resident and founder of the Dogtown Neighborhood Association I’ve advocated for safer streets, more youth intervention and anti-violence programs, job creation, and the quality of life services we all deserve in District 3 – one of the most diverse and vibrant Districts in Oakland.

Learn more about what your neighbors are saying throughout Adams Point, West Oakland, Lake Merritt, Downtown/Jack London and Northgate/Telegraph as the priorities they would like me to address as your Councilmember by clicking on the neighborhood map below.

Please consider attending one of my community get-togethers, hooking up with a Get Diggy With It neighborhood greening event, or joining my Council Campaign to give voice to your neighborhood at City Hall.

        Sincerely,

        Sean Sullivan

Eastlake

To increase safety in Eastlake we need a more visible police presence to deter crimes like car break-ins and allow Eastlake residents to feel safe on their own streets. I will work to ensure potholes are getting fixed, that we slow-down speeding cars, and add more residential permit parking to improve the daily quality of life for neighbors.

Telegraph/Mosswood

I will work to bring these neighborhoods better transit options to keep people connected, support the growing retail opportunities in the area and ensure our parks remain usable for families and pets, and not magnates for crime.

Jack London District

This community is home to my greatest accomplishment, Covenant House Oakland, a housing/job training center for homeless youth. I want for all Jack London District residents to enjoy more of a vibrant, buzzing neighborhood. I will fight to bring this community a grocery store, retail shops, and more parking for residents to ensure our waterfront thrives.

West Oakland

We must continue the fight to eliminate blight, illegal dumping and problem liquor stores, and open a grocery store, a teen service center, and encourage investments for African-American owned businesses. As a West Oakland resident, I actively support the efforts of the Coalition for Clean and Safe Ports, to fight for clean air and jobs for West Oakland, and I support a strong Local Hire ordinance for these jobs. Working together, we can achieve a thriving neighborhood for both old and new residents.

Downtown/Lakeview/Uptown

Fighting blight, the lack of residential parking and lighting, and creating more neighborhood-serving businesses are all necessary throughout Downtown/Lakeview to make this a livable neighborhood. As your Councilmember, I'll create a residential parking program that works for all residents.

Adams Point/HarriOak

As Oaklanders, we can't enjoy walkable neighborhoods if we don't feel safe. Car break-ins, dark streets, potholes, traffic safety and petty thefts are all problems. Speeding and lack of visibility on many blocks are also daily quality of life issues. Adams Point needs stronger police presence/visibility and street lighting to address these issues, while also supporting family-friendly, neighborhood destinations like the Lakeview Library. I've been part of the Harri-Oak and Broadway-Valdez planning discussions for years. I possess an intimate knowledge of neighbors' needs and concerns in all these areas.
