Amber is grateful to have the support of some amazing leaders in the county and the state. Here are a few of those folks...
East Bay Times endorsement
Voters should re-elect Amber Childress for Area 2, which represents Alameda and part of Oakland.
Amber has been a supporter of strong-performing charter schools but is clear that she has voted for and against charters. In short, she is discerning about which she'll support.
Childress has clearly learned a lot in her first term. In the intervening years, she has done her homework and now articulately answers budget questions. In contrast her opponent said she knows noting about the county office budget.
“She is a rock star. She has integrity and intelligence. She has an amazing capacity for hard work and compassion.”
