About Jim Oddie
Jim Oddie is proud to call Alameda home and is running for city council to give back to the city he loves.
As a former city council member and legislative aide, Jim has been an advocate for our Island’s unique neighborhoods and our quality of life.
As a city council member, Jim led efforts to establish the Emergency Operations Center in Central Alameda, worked to keep Alameda Hospital open and financially viable, and to move medically frail unhoused seniors into permanent housing.
