A powerful political action group (PAC) has decided to invest in Alameda’s future. The Golden State Leadership Fund with its Southern California address has poured tens of thousands of dollars into the races for a seat on the Alameda City Council, allowing incumbent Stewart Chen to outspend his rival, Frank Matarrese.

A slick mailer with a more local origin allows Chen and his fellow city council candidate, Jim Oddie, to share in the out-of-town bounty.
