Why I'm Running

Why I'm Running

I, Andre Sandford, am running for the position of State House of Representatives in the 18th District as a member of the Independent party.

I have worked as a Housing and Homelessness Prevention Program Manager, dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those in need. Additionally, I have 8+ years of experience as a compassionate Social Services Director, empowering clients, the community, and employees towards a better future.

When I am not working, I love playing basketball. Growing up, I spent countless hours playing with friends in the streets, and my passion for the game has persisted. I enjoy watching both NBA and college basketball during my free time.

I am determined to run for the State Assembly District 18 because my family, community, and city faced a traumatic incident. My wife, 1-year-old son, and I were robbed at gunpoint outside our apartment in downtown Oakland, CA. This experience has spurred me to take action in order to protect and improve the safety of my loved ones and everyone in the District.

My primary goal is to implement new policies for safety and education that will benefit the entire community. I firmly believe that every single person, regardless of their background or circumstances, should feel secure and have access to quality education.

I am driven by a deep care and concern for the welfare of all individuals, especially the unknown. It is my mission to make a positive impact and ensure that the voices of the people are heard.
