Unlike the other Mayor Brown across the Bay, Oakland head honcho Brown

has garnered predominantly positive headlines since taking office in

January.



Wells, however, denied that her decision to leave had anything to do

with soured relationships between herself and the Brown camp, as had

been reported in the San Francisco Chronicle last week.



Wells maintained that working for eElections.com, which was founded by a

former editor of the Oakland Tribune, was too much of an opportunity to

refuse.



The site, which provides a central-access point for nearly all

legislative and political issue-oriented URLs, has tapped Wells as

marketing and communications director.



’Anyone can use this site to post arguments for either side of any city,

county or state issue,’’ she said. ’It will open up and democratize the

Internet.’ While Wells hasn’t been replaced, media assistant Jim

Nemechek will be holding down the fort temporarily.
