If there is an establishment candidate in this race, it is probably Sam Liccardo. He has snared big endorsements, including ex-D.A. George Kennedy and former mayors Tom McEnery and Susan Hammer. He’s a good friend of Carl Guardino, the head of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. And he’s married to Jessica Garcia-Kohl, a former Rocketship charter school executive.

Rudge raised seven children as a single parent while overcoming tremendous obstacles in her own life. Throughout her life, she was an advocate for the homeless, artists, poets and social change. Through her poetry, she encouraged multicultural understanding and acceptance of diversity. “We Who Are Luminous” was her signature poem, presented at the World Congress of Poets in San Francisco in 1985. Rudge was named the poet laureate of Alameda in 2002. That same year, she began the Alameda Island Poets, a chapter of the California Federation of Chaparral Poets, Inc. She raised awareness about the importance of poetry by holding poetry contests in the high schools, and establishing poet laureates.
