Dear Abel,

Please see a message re: the idea of taking some actions re: sugar-sweetened beverages. There is a
summary sheet attached from this group that outlines their intent and ideas for future actions. Are you
interested in meeting with this group with me to explore the idea of implementing a sugar-sweetened
beverage tax in Oakland? If so, we will work with your office to schedule this meeting with the group
mentioned below.

Thank you,

Annie Campbell Washington

Oakland City Councilmember, District 4
