Within thirty minutes of announcing her victory at Oakland City Hall, and to the delight of the sold-out crowd, the first Asian American woman Mayor of a major US city, Jean Quan, appeared on stage:

"I'm particularly honored to be here becuase ODALC has had this vision of inspiring Oakland and looking at Oakland in new way. ODALC is part of the new Oakland, the next generation. Let's support them!"
- Jean Quan, Oakland Mayor
