Is Nacho Really Out? Or Will He Be the Next Mayor?

Jane Brunner may have replaced Ignacio De La Fuente on Monday as Oakland’s City Council president, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the longtime Fruitvale politician will out of power for long. After the eight-member council voted unanimously to name Brunner the new president, the panel then voted 8-0 to select De La Fuente as vice mayor. Typically, the role of vice mayor is just ceremonial, but there is one major exception. Under the city charter, the vice mayor assumes the role of mayor if the mayor were to leave office before the end of his term.
