Sheng Thao Unites Oakland Progressives for Mayoral Run

Beyond Chron

One week ago, Oakland’s November 2022 mayor’s race seemed wide open…

But on November 10 councilmember Sheng Thao announced broad progressive support. Thao’s mayoral run is backed by Kaplan and Bas along with Attorney General Rob Bonta and Assemblymember Mia Bonta. Two of the Bay Area’s most progressive assembly members, Alex Lee and Ash Kalra, have also endorsed Thao. They are joined by key unions, including the Alameda Labor Council, SEIU 1021, the Alameda County Building and Construction Trades Council, and Teamsters Joint Council 7.
