1. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan is moving quickly to select a new city administrator to replace Dan Lindheim and may appoint a candidate to the position as early as this week, the Chron reports. It’s not clear whether Lindheim, who has worked well with Quan, will remain in City Hall in some other capacity. Meanwhile, Chron columnist Chip Johnson says that Oakland City Attorney John Russo should resign from office if he doesn’t get the Alameda city manager’s job, calling the public spats that Russo has had with Quan and councilmembers “an unattractive sideshow.” By contrast, the Tribune editorialized today that while the situation has been “unpleasant,” a Russo departure would cause more turmoil for Oakland.
