Kamela Peart Statement On Smear Campaign Against Bryan Parker
I am engaged to be married to Bryan Parker. Bryan is one of the most fun, loving and compassionate people I have ever met. His love extends not only to me, but to my children. I look forward to raising a family here in Oakland with Bryan. I also believe Bryan will make a great Mayor for the City of Oakland.
I support Bryan fully and unconditionally.
Recently, like in a bad political drama show, someone tried to test this love and support by dropping two decade old reports in an unmarked envelope to my house with the clear intent to make Bryan drop out of the City of Oakland’s race for Mayor. This made me feel threatened and unsafe in my own home and made me sad for the state of Oakland’s politics.
I know Bryan. We have shared the ups and downs of our various relationships. While Bryan is not perfect, I know he is a man of kindness and compassion who has never been in trouble with the law or otherwise. I am proud to know that I am marrying a man who cared enough about his own self improvement, as a young man, to seek counseling and work on his spirituality to learn to be the best man and partner he can be. I would never expose my children to a person who was anything other but kind and loving.
I hope the people of Oakland do not fall for this political trickery. Make this election about the issues. About who is most capable of bringing the needed change to Oakland. About who will make our city safe, work to better educate our children and grow our economy and bring jobs. If you take the time to get to know Bryan even a little bit, that choice will be obvious to you Bryan is the best person to be the next Mayor of Oakland.
