Voting in the Upcoming Primary

Three weeks from today is the primary. Do you know whom you are voting for? I don’t mean on a national level, I am referring to the local candidates.

There are several incumbents and new faces running for both the Oakland City Council and the Oakland-Craig Board of Education.

I am an incumbent running for election to the Oakland City Council.

I am hoping to be elected to serve the taxpayers of Oakland for the next four years.

I consider it an honor and a privilege to be on the city council, serving the taxpayers and striving to keep Oakland a thriving community.

Being a member of the city council is not just going to one meeting a month. There is so much more involved than most people realize. It takes all of the city employees, the mayor and council to keep the city running efficiently. It is challenging, but very rewarding.

I have to say, I love serving on the council. I believe in giving back to the community I live in, and I chose to do so by serving on the council.

I don’t believe in accomplishing something on the council alone. I believe in all of us working together to reach a goal and need for the community. We are here to serve the citizens and the citizens alone. The needs of the community have and will continue to come first for me.

I love the community of Oakland and hope you will vote for me to continue serving the town I am proud to live in and proud to call home.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you very much,

Denise Gilliland

Oakland City Council President
