Updated: Report: De La Fuente to Push Ranked-Choice Voting Repeal at Council

It looks like an anti-ranked-choice-voting group with close ties to ex-state Senator Don Perata’s campaign manager has already abandoned its signature-gathering drive in Oakland, just days after we wrote about it. Instead, the leader of the group told the Oakland Tribune late last week that Oakland Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente, a longtime close friend and ally of Perata’s, will ask the city council to put the proposed repeal of ranked choice voting on the November ballot. However, De La Fuente did not confirm that he would do so, and it appears that he doesn’t have the necessary votes on the council.
