The mayor’s campaign manager paid for expenses with her personal credit card but did not get reimbursed quickly enough so the payments became illegal donations.

Harrison beat Ben Gould, a UC Berkeley graduate student, by capturing 62% of the vote.
Harrison, backed by Mayor Jesse Arreguín, is highly favored to take the vacant District 4 council seat.
If you live in downtown Berkeley, and you’ve been waiting to cast your mail-in ballot, Tuesday, March 7, is the day.
Berkeley needs a council member in district 4 who understands what it takes to keep Berkeley moving in a direction that effectively and comprehensively addresses the unprecedented inequity facing our city and country.
Downtown property owners always run a just-build-everything candidate in district 4, but we’ve always slapped them down because we know that what happens in downtown has direct effects on our neighborhoods.
Unlike what has been said about my policies, they will make Berkeley more affordable, more inclusionary, and preserve Berkeley’s unique character at a lower cost to our community.
Ben Gould is the right candidate for district 4 and for the city because he supports a policy that would increase the availability of housing at all levels of income.
