Friday, May 8th, 2009 at 2:10 pm in Congressional District 10.
Diablo Valley Community College political science professor Jeremy Cloward of Pleasant Hill has opened a web site and declared his candidacy as a Green Party candidate in the 10th Congressional District.
Cloward has an impressive resume that includes a PHd in political science from Claremont University.
Of course, his prospects of victory are slim. Green Party registration in the 10th Congressional District is slightly more than half of one percentage point.
Read on for an updated list of the 14 candidates and potential candidates to replace Rep. Ellen Tauscher upon her confirmation as Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security:
Democrats - Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan, D-Alamo; Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord; Lt. Gov. John Garamendi of Walnut Grove; San Francisco Attorney’s Office investigator Adriel Hampton of Dublin; and Fairfield native Anthony Woods.
Independents - Fairfield resident Gino VanGundy
Green Party - Diablo Valley Community College political science professor Jeremy Cloward of Pleasant Hill.
Evaluating their options
Democrats - Former Assemblyman Joe Canciamilla of Pittsburg
Independents – Scott Talan, former Lafayette mayor now living in Washington, D.C., area
Republicans - Contra Costa Sheriff Warren Rupf of Martinez; 2008 GOP nominee Nick Gerber of Moraga; California GOP Vice Chairman Tom Del Beccaro of Lafayette; Fairfield Councilwoman and executive director of Move America Forward Catherine Moy; and attorney David Harmer of Dougherty Valley
