Ignacio to Sacramento?

Ignacio De La Fuente, the longest serving member of the Oakland City Council, may give up his seat for a spot in Governor-elect Jerry Brown’s administration in Sacramento, several knowledgeable sources say. De La Fuente and Brown are good friends and were close allies when Brown was mayor of Oakland from 1998 to 2006. If De La Fuente were to leave, then the city would hold a special election within 120 days to fill his seat. He represents Oakland’s Fruitvale and Glenview districts.
