Once the target of racist fliers, Oakland city councilwoman Libby Schaaf has officially launched her campaign for mayor.
On Saturday, Schaaf announced she wants to make the city safer, prioritize education, and promote the"Made in Oakland" that will create local jobs and kick start manufacturing and start-ups.
In January, several posters with Schaaf's face with a swastika drawn on them popped up all over Oakland.
The fliers criticized the city's plans to build a controversial surveillance center.
Schaaf is one of 12 people who is planning to run against current mayor Jean Quan.
