Recalling Berkeley mayor tops activist's busy agenda

Runningwolf has court date to face charges against himselfThere's so much going on in Zachary Runningwolf's life, it's hard to know where to begin.

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.
