Rebecca Kaplan Has a Shot at Being Mayor of Oakland

Oakland City Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan told the Oakland Tribune late last week that she’s “seriously” considering running for mayor this year, the Trib reports. Kaplan said she plans to issue an announcement about her decision next month. Her entry in the race would shake up the mayoral campaign, and would make her the third viable candidate, after ex-state Senator Don Perata and Councilwoman Jean Quan. Mayor Ron Dellums has not announced whether he plans to seek reelection.
