Quan Calls on Oaklanders to Volunteer


During her inaugural speech Monday, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan called on Oakland residents to volunteer in their communities. She urged Oaklanders to form neighborhood crime watches, help clean-up their blocks, and to look out for each other. She also called on residents to join a volunteer organization, to “shop Oakland” and patronize city retailers, and to “discover Oakland” by visiting neighborhoods they’ve never seen or attending local events for the first time.
