Council Candidate Greg Hodge Reinstated on Ballot

A judge on Friday morning ordered that Oakland City Council Candidate Greg Hodge be reinstated on the June ballot. Hodge had originally qualified for the election, but was removed by the City Clerk’s Office after a supporter of incumbent Nancy Nadel questioned the validity of some signatures on his nomination papers. However, after Hodge filed suit earlier this week, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch ruled Friday that Hodge had the fifty required signatures to qualify for the election.
