The State of the City: A Conversation with Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin

Since taking office in December 2016, becoming the first Latino and youngest Mayor in a century, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin has been advancing a vision for an affordable, equitable and sustainable city. Working with the City Council, he has launched an ambitious plan to address the homeless crisis and is working to create a new workforce and affordable housing. The Major is also working to close the opportunity gap in our public schools, defend Berkeley’s sanctuary city status, and improve public safety. He is committed to continuing Berkeley’s environmental leadership and defending our city’s values in the face of a hostile federal administration.
