The APA Democratic Caucus of Alameda County would like to thank everyone who participated in Sunday’s endorsement meeting for Northern Alameda County. It was a great display of our democratic system.
Here are the candidates that have received endorsements:

Berkeley School Board – Beatriz Leyva-Cutler
Berkeley Rent Board – Alejandro Soto-Vigil and Igor Tregub
Oakland City Attorney – Barbara Parker

This is the criteria from our By-Laws used to determine the endorsements:
Article IX. Endorsements: All endorsements must get 60% of votes of the eligible members present and voting on the office or issue in question provided that the membership was notified that endorsements would be entertained in its notice of the meetings, and at least 7 days in advance of the meeting. Dual endorsements shall be permitted. Additionally, all ballots shall contain spaces for eligible members to vote for ”No Endorsement” or to “Abstain” and such votes shall be considered for the purposes of determining the required 60% threshold for endorsement.
Again, thank you to everyone who participated and for your support.
