Former Cal/Phoenix Suns stand out point guard, Kevin Johnson is running for Mayor of Sacramento
Yep. Former Cal/Phoenix Suns point guard, Kevin Johnson, is running for mayor of Sacramento. I read this in the SF Chron the other day, and I was a little surprised. Apparently up there in the land of the sun he's been running his own non-profit organization, St. HOPE, and, in the process, has begun to turn around Sacramento schools. This led to him thinking he could turn around the city of Sacramento. He seems to be pretty serious about this. Even the Sacramento Police Officer's Association has endorsed him. Not sure about the political scene up there, but I wish him luck.
