Few links to ponder:
- Interesting that CityBeat couldn’t get behind Mike Aguirre for city attorney in the paper’s endorsement issue.
We’ve come to conclude that city attorney is just not the right position for Aguirre. He’s long desired public office, and he finally got himself elected to one, but we believe he’s better suited to a seat on the City Council. He’ll argue against this, strenuously, but what he really wants to do is make public policy, and we think he’d be a damn-good policy maker.
- The La Prensa San Diego newspaper’s endorsement of Steve Francis for mayor (which I talk about here) is for some reason no longer available on the paper’s website. Never fear, the Francis campaign has it as a pdf on its site here.
- I’ll be on Editor’s Roundtable Friday to talk about the mayor’s race and today’s big news. What do you think about Standard and Poor’s giving the city back its credit card?
- Oh no! The institution of my marriage suddenly feels threatened and I can’t figure out why.
- I hope you’ve been following the Supporters Debates. Some are better than others. Next week, supporters of the city attorney candidates will have the forum. I haven’t booked anyone yet for the incumbent. I was going to call around but I figured I could post it. If someone wants to nominate themselves or someone else to blog in support of Mike Aguirre, shoot me a note. On Sunday at 6 p.m., I’ll be part of the panel asking questions of the city attorney candidates live on NBC 7/39.
- Still waiting for Bob Kittle and the U-T editorial page to express as much disgust about the bad words the mayor, the mayor’s staff, and the CCDC president used as they did in an editorial about the words the city attorney’s deputy used. I probably shouldn’t hold my breath.
