Anu Natarajan for Assembly?

15 Sep

Local political junkies are floating the name of Fremont Council member, Anu Natarajan, as a potential candidate for Assembly for the 18th district. This suggestion would not have been possible had it not been for the redistricting changes approved recently. After the redistricting commission was done with Fremont, the city was carved into two halves. Natarajan happens to live in the northern 18th district which qualifies her to run for the Assembly in that district.

Some Fremont citizens resent having their city represented by someone from Hayward. Others believe that Natarajan is better positioned for Assembly rather than as Mayor of Fremont. Natarajan also has a flair for public policy and regional issues.

Those hoping for Natarajan to run for Assembly shouldn’t get there hopes up. By all accounts, I’m told that although Natarajan likes the attention, she would rather run in the Fremont Mayor’s race.
