More fuel for the KJ for mayor fire

Newish Natomas-based “The Buzz” found the Bee’s report today that a representative of Kevin Johnson has “pulled papers” for entering the upcoming election for mayor. KJ still has a few weeks to officially enter the race, or should I say to actually create a race, as otherwise Fargo would run unopposed, I believe.

  1. OK, so he’s a celebrity and has done some good (and some not so good) things in Oak Park. But does anyone really think that KJ has any idea of what it takes to be a Mayor? That he has any understanding of the issues facing the City and the State? Or the complex and often contentious relationship between the City and the State? Not to mention how the County and SACOG fit into the picture…

    I guess I’d just like to see candidates who have some experience or background in local politics or activism rather than candidates who simply have the funds and PR machine to run a campaign.

    And if I’m wrong about KJ and his involvement in or knowledge of local issues, feel free to enlighten me.
