“Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown has endorsed Loren Taylor Monday to be Oakland’s next mayor.
Taylor ‘represents the best shot for Oakland,’ Brown told The Chronicle Monday.
Our Editorial Board interviewed six top candidates for this endorsement. Of those, Loren Taylor, a council member for District Six, stood out as particularly thoughtful. A former business consultant and biomedical engineer, he’s committed to transparency and the equitable distribution of city resources.
“Taylor is the standout….An Oakland native, he is a biomedical engineer and management consultant with an MBA. He left the corporate world to launch a consulting firm serving nonprofits and small businesses. His compassionate, thoughtful and measured approach combined with his keen analytical skills are exactly what Oakland needs for its top elected leader.”
Taylor, who is giving up his D6 Council seat to run for mayor, said he’ll continue the reimagining public safety process and establish a City Hall East.
