Introducing GO Oakland’s Accountability Tools

I’ve never been satisfied accepting other people’s opinions at face value. I have to test and investigate ideas, policies, and politicians before I feel comfortable investing my time and energy. In the summer of 2016, I had my first political campaign experience, working on GO Public Schools Advocates’ school board campaigns for districts 1/3/5/7. GO started the summer with a community-driven endorsement process to select candidates to support. While I have immense trust in the GO network of educators, families, and community leaders to pick the right candidates, I still felt that I needed to evaluate them for myself.
