Oakland mayoral candidate Marchon Tatmon on housing, crime, and police reform

Oct 9, 2018

Marchon Tatmon was 16 when he took a class trip to our nation’s capital and down south to where Martin Luther King Jr. was killed. That experience inspired him to be a public servant. Now, he works for a nonprofit called Building Futures that houses homeless families.

"We need to create a pipeline to get more locals in the police force."

Marchon Tatmon spoke with KALW’s Jenee Darden about his plans, if elected, including solving the city’s homelessness crisis.
