In case you missed it, here’s a link to my analysis of the rise and fall of Mike Aguirre, the man who made the City Attorney’s Office something all San Diegans actually had heard about.
A lot of people have asked me what I think he’ll do when he leaves office. Many are joking that he will go down to Chula Vista and run there now that the South Bay city has decided to have an elected city attorney.
I keep responding the same way. I think he’ll go away for a while, grow a huge beard, lose 10 pounds and then he’ll show up again. He was a force in the city when he was just a lawyer and he’ll get out those big poster boards again and start writing tough letters like the old days.
He still has a lot of friends and he’s got a good former title to add a bit of credibility to his future stances. Write him off at your own risk.
