leans on this. 62 pretty good odds. and we know that the team, though, is talking to developers and leaders in nevada. so we're not the only ones in this race, but i will say last night's vote, it does appear that we are potentially winning the race. so darya james will take this and we will remain hopeful that the a's stay rooted in oakland. >> back to you. ok? the faith absolutely. thank you, sarah. >> also in the east bay, that was tense standoff in pleasanton and it ended with officers fatally shooting a man. take a look. you can see them breaking a window on the side of the apartment here. that was yesterday. and this is on willow road and owens drive police worse first called there because of a domestic violence incident. and when they got there, they say that the man would not come out and they ended up confronting him and they say

8:16 am
today and tomorrow, both looking just as dry as one. another just as mild to with light offshore wind to be expected. and we are going to see this pattern shifting into next week. so what that means is you've got to enjoy today and tomorrow as much as possible. because after that, it starts to get pretty brisk. this storm system that drops into the west coast will leave the sierra with snowfall starting monday into tuesday, snow stretching into the rockies, which just as much as we do. bay area that we're sitting too far to the west to be tapping to into in a lot of this moisture. so other than a couple of sprinkles possible on tuesday. all we're going to be feeling is cold winds and cooler temperatures. as far as today goes, nothing brisk about it. it's 60's. it's sunny. and it's also going to be really calm as far as winds go. all this adds up to really comfortable feel. i know you like the way yesterday felt maybe even felt a little warm for some of us today is going to be much like that. campbell in san jose are only 2 spots right at 70 degrees. the rest of the bay area pretty solidly in the mid to upper 60's. the
8:17 am
benicia pittsburgh each 66 looking ahead of next 7 days today and tomorrow are the warmest we start to cool down sunday monday and tuesday easily. the coldest the coolest feel we will have snowfall in the sierra nevada on these days. and as i mentioned, slim chance of a couple sprinkles on tuesday. john, thank you for that. we are still closely watching that hot spot out. annapolis. let's go ahead and get a close look at that. >> it looks like southbound and northbound 2 to one just south of one to one in napa. all lanes are blocked because of some police activity. so what the police are doing there is they're diverting traffic through napa valley college parking lot. so if you're in that area, they're diverting traffic through that napa valley college parking lot. so they're making sure they're getting people through the air. the bay bridge may say that fremont street exit, no issues little under 12 minutes for your drive. there. the san mateo bridge and across towards the peninsula. you're at about 13 for your commute in the south bay.
8:18 am
there are issues like this accident northbound one. 0, one north of northridge straw avenue. so 2.80, or 82 would be good. alternate and highways for getting around that. and we'll check out the richmond. sandra fell come you start to go down a bit tolls to one o one here at 11 minutes. james, back to you. >> thank you very much. rain at 8.18, is the time former vice president mike pence spoke at stanford university talking a bit about the january 6 attack on the capital defending his decision that day he was at stanford. here's the flyer and you can see the event was entitled how to save america from the woke left. he spent much of the slamming the policies of the current administration and then it was after his speech that someone asked him about january 6th, his decision to certify the election and the eye or that drew from then president donald trump. constitution was quite clear on that. tragic day in january. i knew it. my duty was. i kept my oath. even though her. we move the nation
8:19 am
forward. and i don't know if the president i'll ever see eye to eye on that. i really don't. but i will always be proud of the record. the president, donald trump and i created for the american people. >> pence also reference the recent recall of 3 progressive members of the san francisco school board saying that that vote sent shock waves across the country. >> as we reported this week, 3 members of san francisco school board lost their jobs in a recall election. vice president liga resigned immediately. commissioner alison collins and board president gabriela lopez are stepping down 10 days after the election is officially accepted by the city's board of supervisors. we spoke with lopez in collins about the recall and what they think of the outcome. >> none of this is a surprise. >> we've threatened of a maybe even 6 months in toward term because of what we're highlighting, what we're bringing up and what we're challenging. i'm concerned
8:20 am
that. >> there will be folks who will want to roll back some of the work that we've done. it a fact erase the voice of parent and student volunteers who worked really hard over decades to get some of these changes. >> they. >> lopez and colin say despite being recalled, they will continue to push for equity for marginalized students of color. san francisco mayor london breed who endorsed the recall will now hand picks 3 people to fill those seats on the school board. >> san francisco voters will actually have a chance to reform the recall process when they go to the polls in june. and then, of course, after the failed recall of governor newsom last september, there's now talk at the state level of maybe changing the process there as well dan kerman takes a closer look. thank you for rejecting this it was during and after the unsuccessful recall of governor gavin newsome. the calls for reforming the recall process at the state level hit a fever pitch. there is serious
8:21 am
concern by many legislators. >> that that we call that we just saw last year was an unnecessary political exercise that that were no will change and cost the state over 200 million dollars. and so we're looking seriously at a couple reforms in that area. east bay state senator steve glazer chairs the senate committee on elections. >> he says state lawmakers are looking at several reforms among them requiring more signatures to have a recall. any change the signature requirement for 12% of those who vote in the last election, which it is a number that changes every election to a 10% of all registered. you've actually raise the threshold by about 300,000 more city. choose another reform legislators are looking at is not having a second ballot of candidates to replace the person being recalled. california is the exception in the country for having this second ballot that if recall successful, that you immediately replace that person with that, a person that may not even get close to a majority of the vote. and
8:22 am
we're looking closely. that's an outlier in the country. no one else has it. it cannot provide situation where you could have someone win by less than a majority vote. and we're taking us a look at that as well. but there are alternatives being floated. an independent state agency called the little hoover commission. he's floating the idea of a snap special election, a snap election where the person being recalled would also appear on the candidate's side for the successor election. so they would necessarily be left out or off the ballot as currently is the process. legislators say look for some sort of recall reform proposal. >> to come out of the state house sometime within the next month. but keep in mind, any proposal that is passed by the state legislature must be approved by the voters of california. dan kerman kron. 4 news. 22 is the time coming up on the kron. 4 morning news. the crisis in ukraine is intensifying. president biden warning. >> attack may be imminent. we'll have the very latest on
