Carlos Plazola

Biography

I have been working for Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente for 7 years as a council/legislative aide and before that was with Congresswoman Barbara Lee. I use my environmental training often in my capacity as an Aide to De La Fuente, primarily helping to solve environmental injustices associated with lack of open space, lack of access to transportation, lack of adequate housing and jobs for low-income individuals, and dangerous environmental surroundings. I enjoy it thoroughly.
