Welcome to the website of Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin


Dear Neighbor, 

I am humbled beyond words by the trust the people of this great city have placed in me. And I am overjoyed to be your Mayor.

I promise you this. As Mayor of Berkeley, I will always, always, fight for our shared progressive values and continue to carry the torch of this wonderfully progressive, trailblazing city. Perhaps in some small part, our city can be a local beacon in this national darkness.

Throughout my campaign for Mayor we talked about making Berkeley work for everyone. And that will be the mission I will carry forward as your Mayor.

Together, let’s build more affordable housing so our working families don’t get pushed out of our great city. Let’s raise the minimum wage to a truly living wage, so that nobody who works full time in Berkeley lives in poverty. Let us continue Berkeley’s trailblazing environmental leadership, to protect our air, our water, and our open spaces. Let us do all that we can to close those widening gaps in health, education, and economic opportunity, so that every child born in Berkeley, every family who lives here or decides to move here can get a fair shot at reaching for their dreams.

As a full time Mayor I work every day on your behalf and I am committed to listening and working with you. Please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. We are always here to help!

I look forward to working with you to ensure that Berkeley remains a diverse, socially just and vibrant place to live.
