 The League of Women Voters of Oakland is excited to collaborate with the Dimond Improvement Association (DIA) to sponsor Oakland's first Meet Your Public Official (MYPO) event. We first learned about the popular MYPO and “speed dating” from the LWV of Alameda. On the evening of October 2 at the Dimond Branch Library, you will have an opportunity to engage public officials in a short (under 5-minute) one-on-one, seated “speed date” discussion. 

Our public officials participating are:


  • Alameda County District 4 Supervisor, Nate Miley 
  • Alameda County District Attorney, Nancy O’Malley
  • Alameda County Superintendent of Schools, L. Karen Monroe
  • Oakland District 4 Councilmember, Sheng Thao
  • Oakland City Auditor, Courtney Ruby
  • Oakland Unified School District 4 Director, Gary Yee
  • Peralta Community College District 5 Trustee, Cindi Napoli-Abella Reiss
  • EBMUD Ward 3 Director, Marguerite Young
  • AC Transit Ward 3 Director, Elsa Ortiz 
  • EBRPD Ward 2 Director, Dee Rosario

  • Oakland Director of Transportation, Ryan Russo 
  • Oakland Deputy Chief of Police, LeRonne Armstrong 
  • Dimond Park Rec Center Interim Director, Alonna Mellion

Come with your questions!  Meanwhile, we invite you to learn more about, and how to contact your elected representatives.
