Dear Neighbor - 

Welcome to the City Council District 4 website. Here you will find updates on legislation and initiatives affecting our district and our city. You will also find information and links to city services and city departments (Please find a list of helpful numbers for city services at the bottom of this page.) 

In addition, my office sends out periodic newsletters with crime alerts, information on community meetings and events, and city wide issues that directly impact District 4 residents (Click on the "Sign Up for the District 4 Newsletter" link above).

I am honored to represent District 4, the heart of Berkeley. Our  district is a diverse and wonderful area encompassing the Downtown and half of the North Shattuck commercial district, as well as residential neighborhoods west of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and north of University Avenue. 

Over the past seven years, I have worked hard to build a greener, brighter future for our city. I have worked with the entire Council on a wide range of issues and have been successful in passing laws: promoting urban agriculture in Berkeley; protecting tenants; streamlining the permitting process Downtown; implementing police reforms to protect the civil liberties of residents; and establishing an Affordable Housing Mitigation Fee to fund new affordable housing units. My priorities include: Continuing Downtown's success, addressing the affordability crisis, providing bold environmental leadership to fight climate change and promoting safe streets and livable neighborhoods.  

As a full time Councilmember, 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.
