Josh Richman

Josh Richman covers state and national politics for the Bay Area News Group. A New York City native, he earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and reported for the Express-Times of Easton, Pa. for five years before coming to the Oakland Tribune and ANG Newspapers in 1997. He is a frequent guest on KQED Channel 9’s “This Week in Northern California;” a proud father; an Eagle Scout; a somewhat skilled player of low-stakes poker; a rather good cook; a firm believer in the use of semicolons; and an unabashed political junkie who will never, EVER seek elected office.

    I’m gonna vote for Tim Donnelly because he has the best uniform patches.
    Heck, sometimes Jerry Brown doesn’t have even have a flag on his lapel.

    Also, out of the three candidates, Tim Donnelly has the most hair.

  • Elwood

    Hear, hear for hair!

  • JohnW

    Jerry Brown can do the most chin ups.

    I agree with one thing Tim Donnelly says in his commercial, when he says “You won’t believe the responses I get.”
