Oakland School Board Member Suddenly Quits

Longtime Oakland School board member David Kakishiba announced that he’s resigning from the board effective December 1 after a recent legal opinion by the district’s new attorney determined that he has a conflict of interest. Kakishiba is the executive director of the East Bay Asian Youth Center, a nonprofit that does about $1 million of business annually with Oakland schools, providing after-school programs. Although Kakishiba has been diligent about recusing himself from issues involving his nonprofit and the school district over the years, Jackie Minor, the district’s new general counsel, determined that his dual positions with the nonprofit and the district represent a conflict.
