Runningwolf has court date to face charges against himself
First, he's trying to recall Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, a man who trounced Runningwolf in last year's election. Bates collected 62.9 percent of the vote and was elected to a second term with the largest margin of any mayor in Berkeley in 40 years.
Bates previously served more than 20 years in the state legislature.
Runningwolf, who in 1999 served a stint on the city's Peace and Justice Commission and staged his own run for mayor, took 4.7 percent of the vote.
