OAKLAND (BCN) A serious Sheng Thao addressed guests at her inauguration as Oakland mayor Monday afternoon with commitments to improve public safety, and among other things, work with the Oakland A's to keep the team rooted locally while upholding the city's values. Thao, whose family is from Laos, was sworn in by California Attorney General Rob Bonta. The theme of her speech was unity, calling on Oaklanders to join her and pledging to earn the trust of residents who voted for other candidates.
