Ready to work at 9am and someone’s in my parking spot.—New Oakland Councilmember Nikki Fortunato Bas ran into a buzzsaw on Oakland Twitter last week after striking a privileged tone in a Jan. 8 tweet after someone snagged her City Hall parking spot. She added, "TIP: if you want your rep to work on your tax dollar, respect our space so we don’t waste our time or you’re going to get a parking ticket."

Look for extremely close toss-up races in Oakland’s Districts 2, 4, and a nail biter in District 6 next Tuesday.
