Councilwoman and Former Mayor Runs for Lieutenant Governor

Former Richmond Mayor

Running as “the Bernie Sanders of the East Bay”, Councilwoman and former Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin announced this week her run for the lieutenant governor’s seat in California. Councilwoman McLaughlin’s campaign as a “corporate-free Berniecrat” concentrates on “putting people first [and] organizing corporate-free local groups throughout the state ….”.

Within her platform, Councilwoman McLaughlin supports single-payer, universal health care, affordable housing, and rent control. In support of environmental quality, she has long been a critic of the Chevron Richmond refinery.

  1. This woman is arrogant, rude, insulting, and does not study the issues before her nor really listen to all her constituents—only the ones who share her opinions and preset goals. I watched her treat several of her fellow council-members and many citizen speakers with extreme disdain because they did not hold her opinion, then she ignored all of them AND the research her own staff-members brought. I am so glad that I don’t live in Richmond and have to be subject to her “leadership” . . .
