Is Dellums Running for Mayor?

Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums gave a one-hour speech yesterday to the Oakland chambers of commerce that appeared to be either an effort to rehabilitate his reputation or to set the stage for a reelection bid. Throughout the wide-ranging speech at the Oakland airport Hilton, Dellums repeatedly touted his accomplishments in the past year, from garnering tens of millions in federal stimulus funds to his efforts to keep the A’s in Oakland and his decision to hire new police chief Anthony Batts, whom he described repeatedly as a “superstar.”
