Do you also have predictions for Berkeley for 2014?

Henson for mayor- he must be smoking something!

This is list will be growing. I'll have Berkeley and other Alameda County cities up soon.

Pauline Cutter is district 5, not district 3.

Mike Katz Lacabe Marga's husband. Wow a wanna be lawyer wife and a wanna be city councilman.God help us! lol

You are missing Bob Glaze for San Leandro Mayor and anyone not named Mike Katz in District 1

Bob Glaze would be a great Mayor, hope he runs and sends Cassidy back to San Francisco

What about Castro Valley's incorporation efforts projected for the 2014 ballot? There's a group that are actually proving it to be possible after several failed attempts!

Barbara "Closet Racist" Lee

Ellen "Needs A Life Job" Corbett

Mike "Can't Term Me Out" Honda, Congress member

State Assembly
15th District (North Oakland-Berkeley)
NO ONE KNOWS ANY OF THESE PEOPLE...HAYASHI SHOULD RUN HERE!

Tim "I Wish I Were Eric" Sbranti

Rob "Who Am I?" Bonta

Bill "Picked Last For The Annual Assembly Softball Team" Quirk

Mary "Hopefully People Forget Who I Am" Hayashi

Francisco "Wannabe Che" Zermeno

Henson for Mayor. A long shot but so is Zermeno.

Katz for city council? HELL NO! Look at the schools, Katz and other boardmembers borrowed money against the bond and going to cost taxpayers big $$$ to pay it back. His wanna be lawyer wife Lacabe has a law suit against our school district, while her husband sits on the school board. Maybe this is how they plan to raise his needed campaign funds for city council. These people are a sad joke! People are sick of them.

Vote Zermeño! He is dedicated and determined to support Hayward and better education in Hayward. Time for a positive change!

Eric Swalwell is a slimy flip flopping stand for nothing congressman and is ripe to get beat by Ellen Corbett.

Lee Thomas is not on the School Board. Fail

You are missing Roman Reid in Assembly 25

add for Hayward City Council: Rodney Loche, Planning commissioner

Shouldn't that be Mary "Hopefully This Store Doesn't Have Security Cameras" Hayashi?

And for the record if Mary Hayashi manages to win ANYTHING again after the shoplifting incident I will have lost all hope for our governing process.

Good to see Tyron Jordan's name for AC Transit Board...honest, intelligent and well-grounded individual.

Mr. Jordan used to be famous sprinter at Fairfield High School in Fairfield,California many years ago. He also ran quite a few marathons over the years. He is very sharp, bright, and articulate.

Hear Marga Lacabe and Mike Katz-Lacabe both have been living on welfare for awhile.

I worked with Tyron Jordan at a small Oakland based law firm a few years ago. My impression of him
Was that he was very bright, very honest, and had a high level of integrity. His affable personality and ability to work with a diverse range of people, would be an asset as an AC Transit. Director at Large.

I do not understand the 'welfare' comment. What is the point?

I think, this will be a year where we will see some new faces in office. Definitely the 17th congressional district, possibly district 6 Oakland City Council, AcTransit, and possibly the 15th congressional district

Barbara Lee will be a shoe-in. I don't see anyone running against her. In Oakland, i think Desley Brooks days on City Council are numbered. AcTransit Directors Williams and Davis are shoe-ins, don't see Young winning. Quirk will have no problem, nor will Bonta. But anything can happen between now and November

Dana King will be a very formidable candidate for City Council

The 20th District needs Jaime! He is a common sense, pro-growth, fiscal conservative and social moderate!

This is going to be a very interesting pilitical season. I have the sense, that it will not be a very good year for incumbents. Some of the exceptions being Barbara Lee, Honda, Mayor Gilmore, most of the incumbents on AcTransit are safe.

I dont see Barbara Lee losing, Honda will win, Tony Thurmond chances are excellent, Bill Quirk will win, Bonta will win,, Guilian will win, Ortiz, Williams, Davis will win for AcTransit, Jean Quan will win

10:11 you are correct. The machine is alive and well. So sad.....

10:11, makes good predictuon. But in politics, anything can happen. So it is difficult to make prediction. I think only the incumbents who are tarnished, are most vulnerable.

timeto stop reelecting over and over again some of these 'do nothing" candidates on this list

This list is really growing! It will be an interesting election season!

Time to throw a kink in the political machine!

Think there will be more candidates on this list for the June 3rd primary, and November elections?

14 candidates for mayor of Oakland! I think this surpasses the number of candidates in 2010.

I think that Mike Honda reelection chances are looking brighter in the 17th district. The field is getting very crowded

I Lena Tam picked the wrong race. Don't see Raburn losing
