Sacramento candidate of the "Occupy" movement

2012-01-24 message from "Occupy Sacramento!":
 Hoping to get some fellow occupiers out at news conference. These are OUR type of candidates...Occupy cannot endorse, but many of us support this kind of pro-active political work.
"First 'Pro-Occupy/99%' candidates officially announce campaigns; Will try to defeat incumbents  on Sacramento County Board of Supervisors in June":
 SACRAMENTO – OccupySacramento attorney Jeff Kravitz and high school government teacher Gary Blenner will officially announce Wednesday that they are running for Sacramento County Board of Supervisors – as the first "pro-Occupy/99%" candidates in the area.
 The news conference will be held WEDNESDAY, 1-25-12, at 9:30 a.m. at County Administration Building (700 H Street, outside entrance on H St. side).
 Kravitz, a volunteer attorney for Occupy activists arrested at Cesar Chavez Park, is a civil rights lawyer and former constitutional law professor. He is running in District 3.
 Blenner is a government teacher at Rio Americano High School, and a former school board member in the Center Unified School District. He is running in District 4.
 Both will announce they will be running "for the 99%," not corporations, promising to hold a series of "99% community forums" over the next few months to find out what the 99% want them to do if they are elected.
