About Corky Boozé
Mr. Boozé obtained two lifetime teaching certifications from the University of California Extension at Berkeley in adult education and grades K-12. He also completed two years of administrative studies in education at San Francisco State University.
His professional experience was with the Oakland Unified School District and the Alameda Unified School District as a vocational education instructor for eleven years.
He moved to Richmond in 1978 and has been an advocate for the citizens of Richmond ever since.
As your City Council representative he pledges to work for you and bring unique approaches to issues and concerns such as education, health services, crime prevention, funding solutions and development within our city.
Prior to being elected to the Richmond City Council, he had attended every meeting for 10 years. Mr Boozé believes the citizens of Richmond have been under-represented and have not had a voice at City Council meetings. He will continue to be the community voice for the citizens of Richmond who are unable to speak out for themselves. He will be the arms for those who can't reach out for the help they need, and he'll be the feet for those who can't travel to City Council meetings, especially our senior citizens and the disabled.
