Judge Jan Goldsmith said in an interview this afternoon that he will not seek the City Attorney’s Office in 2008 after saying a few weeks ago that he was considering a run.

“I told people I’d consider it, but I like being a judge, I like being nonpolitical, and of course I live in Coronado,” said Goldsmith, who noted he would have to move into the city of San Diego to run.

Goldsmith, a former Republican assemblyman, said he started telling supporters a few weeks ago that he will not challenge City Attorney Mike Aguirre.

Mike Neil, a former brigadier general in the Marine Corps and a local trial attorney, said he is still undecided. Neil, a Republican, is a partner at Neil, Dymott, Frank, McFall & Trexler.

We’ll be checking in with other potential candidates who have said they are undecided in all the races over the next few weeks.
