Alameda County Supervisor Miley dominates re-election bid

Four-term incumbent leads challenger Bryan Parker 61.78% to 37.55% in final tally

Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley controlled Election Night in his bid to continue representing Pleasanton and the rest of District 4 on the Board of Supervisors.

The four-term incumbent finished Tuesday with 27,119 votes, or 61.78%, well ahead of lone challenger Bryan Parker, a former Port of Oakland commissioner and former Oakland mayoral candidate who received 37.55% of the vote in the supervisor race at the end of Election Night.

"Granted there are still late-arriving absentee ballots to be counted, but this is a resounding win," Miley said in a statement Wednesday. "With nearly 11,000 more votes than our opponent, it is safe to call this one."

Miley, who has served on the county board since 2000, represents a district that includes East Oakland, Montclair, Castro Valley, Ashland, Cherryland, Fairview, El Portal Ridge and Pleasanton.

"I am truly humbled to have received so much support from so many during this campaign," he added, singling out his supporters from Pleasanton, including all five City Council members.

"Campaigns can bring people closer together," Miley said. "My office approaches our day-to-day work at the county like this, always organizing and working with people. We will continue to do this work with people, build community, and strengthen families in the city of Pleasanton."

"It is with much respect, humility, and sincerity that I thank you for supporting my re-election to county supervisor. Please stay engaged we have a housing bond to pass this November," he said.
