Jesse Smith Gets Signatures At Peet’s Coffee In Run For Mayor Of Oakland

(Last Updated On: December 29, 2018)

Oakland News Now sets virtual office for Run. The new Peet’s Coffee on Broadway and Telegraph Avenue in Downtown at 1615 Broadway, has already become a community center.

Because of its location right smack in the middle of the central business district of , you are likely to not only see someone you know but also someone you should know. In his hunt for signatures for his run for , Jeese Smith could be found at Peet’s, and he wasn’t hanging out for free pastries. Smith needs at least 50 good signings to be on the ballot against the incumbent Libby Schaaf.

The last time Jesse and I talked about this, the Police critic had 60 standard signatures and 7 “sponsor” signatures. One of the standard signatures is mine. Simple reason: anyone who is trying to show that anyone can run for the office of , deserves my “John Hancock”. Moreover, it’s good to see Jesse evolve from being a practitioner of civil disobedience to a candidate for the office of .

Considering the number of people in who complain about government, it’s weird to have only 16 people running for Mayor against the incumbent Libby Schaaf – and that is a record! There should be at least 100 of them.

To date, Jesse has based his campaign in one Twitter account and failed to make any public speeches or press conferences – until last night, when he went to the weed industry candidates forum, and gave a speech he tweeted about later, saying he was the only person running who didn’t talk about himself.

Well, there is nothing wrong with talking about yourself and the whole point is to talk about yourself. But Jesse is obviously gaining confidence in himself – will it be enough to increase his visibility in the Mayoral Race? Well, he has to be certified by the Oakland City Clerk, first.

Stay tuned.
