Courtney Ruby is Oakland's City Auditor who now wants to be Oakland's next mayor. Ruby says her priority is public safety and since she has experience crunching the numbers she's convinced that she can find the funds to add at least 200 more police officers on the street. Not just any kind of officer, Ruby's rallying for more engaged officers and says she's not afraid to take a stand on tough issues.
In the past Ruby has taken on City Hall and forced the city to refund millions in overpaid parking tickets. She's known for questioning shady contracts and exposing what she calls "a broken system."
