  1. Thank you for this list. Any chance of some investigative journalism? Have declared candidates filed their required financial paperwork? Do candidates live in the jurisdiction they are running to serve?


  2. 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


  3. 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


  4. 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


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


  6. 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


  7. Rob,

    I can confirm that Morris is running for the mayorship. Morris, while being very dead, is sure that he can do as well. He is using as a model the Trump example of truth telling.


  8. 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


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


  10. Primary 2022 is in June

  11. 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


  12. John, this is about the safest bet ever made. Short of offering to end Bona’s time, which will likely get you a trip to Pelican Bay you are safe to never have to actually pay up.


  13. 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.
