Two more names have emerged in the guesstimation game of who will run for San Jose’s downtown City Council seat in 2014, when Sam Liccardo terms out of District 3 and runs for mayor. Interesting enough, both people currently work less than a stone’s throw away from each other at City Hall. Joseph Okpaku, chief of staff for District 2 Councilmember Ash Kalra, and Kathy Sutherland, chief of staff for District 10 Councilmember Nancy Pyle, both insist they haven’t given future campaigns much thought and remain focused on helping their bosses make sure the city doesn’t implode. But both District 3 residents could be contenders. Sutherland, a long-time community organizer who helped form the Delmas Park neighborhood group, says she has considered running but won’t worry about it until Pyle leaves office at the end of this year. Okpaku, meanwhile, has a boss who just earned re-election this summer and said he is “definitely not running.” But then he added, “Minds can always change.” For now, go ahead and assume the pair will be squaring off with Mayor Chuck Reed’s chief of staff, Pete Furman, next fall.
