Anyone surprised to hear that Norm Kline plans to run against District 6 rep Pierluigi Oliverio will not be surprised to learn it’s just a rumor. Kline, the planning commissioner, former Saratoga mayor and SJI blogger, is probably gearing up to run for something, but not PO’s seat. That would be Steve Kline, a recent transplant from San Francisco who has been buttonholing everyone at SJ City Council meetings and is cozy with unionistas Cindy Chavez and Steve Preminger.
Another rumor has it that Steve K. heard Norm K. might be in the race, which made the union tool nervous that he’d have no chance in a two-Kline contest. That rumor is 100-percent true.
