Oakland, Ca., has really made a serious mark in their city’s history. They finally decided to do the right thing and elect a woman for the first time in the city’s history. The change will probably be a breath of fresh air for the city. Her ad campaign certainly suggested that she’s definitely on the side of the youth and like Obama, they are probably who sealed her victory for her.
The new mayor Jean Quan, 61, is a double treat for the city because not only is she a woman, she’s Asian American. Many cities throughout America, much less Oakland, have ever had an Asian mayor. Folks laughed at her ads to get in, but look who’s laughing now. The two term city council member snuck in through the back door as former state senator Don Perata was the city’s hopeful. Check out her secret weapon to winning.
