I am curious to know the percentage of democrats and republicans, of elected persons currently in local San Leandro Govt. only, for offices which have declared a party affiliation please.
All local elected government positions in San Leandro (city and school district) are non-partisan. The county supervisor (District 3) position held by Alice Lai-Bitker is also non-partisan.
State senator (10th District) Ellen Corbett represents San Leandro and is a Democrat. She's also a former member of the San Leandro City Council and a former San Leandro Mayor. State assemblymember (18th District) Mary Hayashi is a Democrat. Our congressional representative (13th District) is Pete Stark, who is a Democrat.
While city council positions are non-partisan in theory--you might notice that all city council candidates are Democrats, receive money from the Democrat party, and usually tout the Democrat party endorsement in their campaign materials. This might help explain why town leadership often takes a liberal vantage point on issues and focuses on more federal-level Democrat issues such as immigrants rights, anti-war rallies, and environmental concerns instead of combating local problems facing the town.
