I have a lot to write about today, hopefully I can get to even a fraction of it.

First off, I heard from Phil Thalheimer’s campaign consultant, Jennifer Jacobs. Thalheimer himself hasn’t had a chance to call, but Jacobs passed along that, despite my totally unsubstantiated speculation, Thalheimer is, in fact, opposed to Proposition A, the parcel tax that would pay for increased fire protection and perhaps a regional fire department in San Diego.

Remember, this is the measure that County Supervisor Ron Roberts said San Diegans should be ashamed of themselves if they don’t approve.

So, Roberts’ fellow Republicans Thalheimer and April Boling and Democrats Marti Emerald and Thalheimer opponent Sherri Lightner — you all should be ashamed of yourselves if this measure doesn’t pass.

Shame. Shame. Shame! A plague on your houses!

On another note, last week the crack team here at Scott Lewis on Politics also asked the candidates where they stood on the beach booze ban.

Thalheimer supports it, which puts him in agreement with Lightner and at odds with District 3 candidate Todd Gloria, Emerald and Boling. Again, District 3’s Stephen Whitburn has said he’s neutral.

I’d still like to get Thalheimer on the horn, but that’s where we are for now.
