Alameda County District 5 is a vibrant community comprised of diverse cultures and ethnicities. There are constant events, issues and activities that are taking place within the District at any moment in time.

The Fifth District includes the cities of Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Piedmont, and West Oakland, North Oakland, Rockridge, Grand Lake, and portions of the Fruitvale, Manzanita and Dimond District neighborhoods.

As your County Supervisor:

  1. I hope to make it easier for the residents to learn more about the District and other County Services;
  2. I will keep the residents of District 5 more informed about relevant issues - political, economic, and social - that impact the residents of our District; and
  3. I want to hear your ideas about what is working and what you think would make our communities better.

I will continue to work to bring together people who have a wealth of talent and creative resources to address our shared problems in our communities including access to health care, ending poverty, homelessness, crime, improving business retention, and employment.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any issues, ideas and concerns you want to share with me.

Yours Truly,

News & Announcements

COVID-19 graphic

Last month the State announced their color-coded four-tier Blueprint for a Safer Economy. On September 22, 2020, the State announced that Alameda County is in the Red Tier. This is a tier below Purple, and still reflects the substantial risk of COVID-19 in our county.

While movement to the Red Tier allows for additional sectors to open with restrictions, local Health Officers can proceed more cautiously than the State allows. As with all other re-openings, it will be important for Alameda County to take a measured and phased approach to avoid dramatic increases in disease transmission and re-closures. As we did when the Blueprint for a Safer Economy was first announced, we are carefully examining the potential impact of activities that may be permitted to reopen or expand in the Red Tier.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, we have learned a lot more about the effectiveness of COVID-19 mitigation strategies like limiting mixing among different households and maintaining stable groups, consistent use of face coverings, physical distancing, good handwashing technique, and screening of symptoms and exposure. We are using the next two weeks (through October 6) to ensure our metrics remain stable and we will release a phased plan that balances increased risk of spread of COVID-19 from newly permitted activities alongside appropriate mitigation strategies that can be implemented.

At this time, there is no change to permitted or prohibited activities in Alameda County.

Bringing students back for in-person learning is a top priority for the next phase of reopening. Though counties in the Red Tier are permitted to open schools for in-person learning after two weeks in the Red Tier, our Health Officer Order issued on August 28 clarified that schools must continue distance learning until such time that local conditions support in-person learning, even if the County meets the State's criteria for in-person learning.
