Four contenders are seeking election in November to the District 9 seat being vacated by Loni Hancock that serves the area west of the East Bay hills from San Leandro on the south to Rodeo on the north and includes Oakland, Berkeley and Richmond.
A 20-year-old Oakland man was in custody after his arrest last week on suspicion of burglary, auto theft and possession of burglary tools, police said.
