Life on the trail: A day campaigning with Oakland’s mayoral candidates

on October 31, 2014

Starting around noon Wednesday at a campaign headquarters at a co-working space in downtown Oakland and until nearly 9 p.m., when the day ended at a mayoral sports forum at a Lakeshore neighborhood church, we followed candidates Courtney Ruby, Joe Tuman, Bryan Parker and Mayor Jean Quan.

The latest polls indicate candidates Kaplan, Schaaf, Quan, Tuman and Parker as the top contenders in Tuesday’s close race.

    This is a misleading article – you don’t bother to go out with the two front runners Kaplan and Schaaf and yet you title it “a day campaigning with Oakland’s Mayoral Candidates”. absurd.
