  1. What happened here? Bob Wieckowski has joined Lou Filipovich and Ellen Corbett? What is going on?


  2. Isn’t it kind of early for this shit? The 2020 election just ended!


    • Bob, you could always tune it out. There needs to be time for the Repumps to start spending money on their bund. They will have to turn over a lot of rocks to find the White Power, Neo-Nazi, Russian, North Korean, fascist, Right To Life, Blue Lives Matter, Hurray for Texas losers to run for office.


  3. I will pay $1,000,000 to anyone who defeats Rob Bonta.


  4. The next Mayor of Oakland a Law and Order” candidate? What have you been smoking Mr. Taveras?


  5. Rob Bonta is rumored to run for Alameda County district attorney, if he does not get the AG nod. I think he would make an exactly choice in either position


  6. Rutherfraud b Hayes will be a candidate for Hayward City Council


  7. Primary 2022 is in June

  8. Bitcoin billionaire JoeGotrocks, will find to run for Mayor of Hayward. He believes that he’s the people’s choice


  9. Rumor has it that Morris the Cat has filed papers to run for Mayor of Oakland, he feels that human have failed as Mayors and that its past time that a feline take over


  10. Joel Young who ran an impressive race for AD 18 Assembly seat back in 2012, should run in Special election to fill Bonta’s seat


  11. I thought Lily Mei was elected to Fremont mayor barely 6 months ago? Just a stepping stone for her… disappointing….


  12. I, Bob Javits is throwing my never washed baseball cap in the ring, in the race for 18th assembly district. Although I have no education, no job nor prospects, I believe that I have what it takes to clean up Sacramento


  13. Please include 18th assembly district candidate Eugene Canson’s website. He has a compelling Utube presentation, and he is a Health Care Professional. His website is Eugene CansonforCA.com


  14. God what a dismal set of choices in the special election for freelancers.


  15. At the end of the day, if elected, none of these candidates will actually DO anything to uplift their communities. They will be in perpetual campaign and fundraising mode. None will actually shake up the status quo, especially when they become part of it
