Alameda County District 5 is a vibrant community comprised of diverse cultures and ethnicities. There are constant events, issues and activities that are taking place within the District at any moment in time.

The Fifth District includes the cities of Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Piedmont, and West Oakland, North Oakland, Rockridge, Grand Lake, and portions of the Fruitvale, Manzanita and Dimond District neighborhoods.

As your County Supervisor:

  1. I hope to make it easier for the residents to learn more about the District and other County Services;
  2. I will keep the residents of District 5 more informed about relevant issues - political, economic, and social - that impact the residents of our District; and
  3. I want to hear your ideas about what is working and what you think would make our communities better.

I will continue to work to bring together people who have a wealth of talent and creative resources to address our shared problems in our communities including access to health care, ending poverty, homelessness, crime, improving business retention, and employment.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any issues, ideas and concerns you want to share with me.

Yours Truly,

News & Announcements

COVID-19 graphic


Alameda County is experiencing a continued increase in reported COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, indicating elevated disease transmission. The magnitude of the change is above what would be expected as a result of the County's substantial expansion of testing, and we have been placed on the State’s County Monitoring List. Counties placed on the Monitoring List receive targeted support from the State and, are subject to State-imposed restrictions and enforcement

Factors driving increased case rates include increased interpersonal interactions without face coverings and physical distancing, and ongoing transmission among health care workers, within households, in frontline workplace settings, and in skilled nursing and other congregate living facilities.

Although Alameda County reopened more slowly, our epidemic is affected by accelerated reopening across the region and state, as our residents often live, work and recreate across county boundaries.

Effective July 15, the State requires:

  1. Places of worship to hold outdoor services only. Indoor services are prohibited.
  2. Indoor malls are required to close. This does not impact other indoor retail at this time.


Last week, the State of California approved Alameda County’s Variance Attestation application. With this approval, the Alameda County Public Health Officer released an updated order allowing the Oakland Zoo to reopen for outdoor activities and for outdoor dining to continue.

The Oakland Zoo will re-open to the general public on July 29, 2020.
