California officials must be held accountable for addressing the state’s most pressing issues. The midterm elections this November are a chance for voters to show their representatives that they won’t stop demanding actionable change at every level of government.
This election season is a critical time for the city of Berkeley — residents will be electing council members for four city districts, as well as a city auditor and representatives for the Rent Stabilization Board and the Berkeley Unified School District board.
In the weeks leading up to the critical Nov. 6 date, the editorial board of The Daily Californian has been interviewing Berkeley’s candidates to discuss their plans for the city. We spoke to the official proponents and opponents of city measures, and did independent research on county measures and state propositions, as well as the candidates running for county, state and federal positions. We’ve put in the work to make the best recommendations to our readers about which candidates, measures and propositions to vote for in these midterm elections. Take a look.
