Don Perata, the disgraced former state senator, may spend an unprecedented $1 million to win the Oakland mayor's race. So his main challengers: Rebecca Kaplan, Jean Quan, and Joe Tuman - the Express' choices for mayor - desparately need your help. To make donations, visit the candidates' websites or their campaign headquarters (see info after jump):
Rebecca Kaplan: website is http://www.kaplanformayor.org/. Headquarters is 1773 Broadway in Oakland's Uptown district.
Jean Quan: website is http://www.jeanquanforoakland.org/. Headquarters is 3237 Grand Avenue, Oakland.
Joe Tuman: website is http://www.joe4mayor.com/. Headquarters is 3219 Grand Avenue, Oakland.
You can also pick up lawn signs, window signs (great for apartment dwellers), and bumper stickers at the candidates' headquarters. Remember Oakland's donation limit is $700 for individuals and $1,300 for political committees. Spouses can each donate up to $700. Donations of $99 and less are not listed on publicly disclosed campaign finance reports.
