Oakland mayoral candidate Saied Karamooz on development, jobs, and housing

Oct 16, 2018

Oakland businessman Saied Karamooz was a senior executive in the tech industry and worked with Fortune 100 companies. These days he’s running a skin care company with his wife and running for mayor.

"The only obstacle standing between what the people of Oakland deserve and what they currently have is a dysfunctional government."

Karamooz met up with KALW’s Jenee Darden at Lake Merritt. He tells her why he wants to take care of business in the top job at city hall.
