Term-Limits Measure Could Give Councilwoman Jane Brunner an Unfair Advantage

Oakland Councilwoman Jane Brunner used to oppose term limits. But in recent weeks, she has done an about-face on the issue, and now supports them. In fact, she’s asking the rest of the city council to put a term-limits measure on the November ballot. But what Brunner hasn’t mentioned publicly is that Oakland campaign manager Larry Tramutola is expected to run both her campaign for city attorney this fall and the term-limits measure at the same time, thereby giving the councilwoman a potential unfair political advantage on Election Day.
