The Campaign

Scott Barnett has staked his campaign for school board against incumbent John de Beck on whipping a massive school district into financial shape.

The Resume

Barnett is best known as the former head of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association and has hovered over local politics for decades, hopscotching from one gig to another.

The Track Record

Barnett opposed the push for a new ballpark and gained a reputation for not toeing the party line. But he missed the first signs of the city pension debacle and has been tagged as a political opportunist.
