There is a special election for City Council in Oakland, and one of the eight candidates is a Green. Aimee Allison is endorsed by the Sierra Club and the Oakland teachers union. She has a BA in history and an MA in education from Stanford and taught high school for four years. She was also a conscientious objector in the first Gulf War, with an honorable discharge from the military.
Here's some commentary on her campaign from Bay Area blogger Daniel Borgström.
