Mayor Aguirre?

It must have been a slow afternoon over that the VOSD yesterday. They posted a piece on the idea of Mike Aguirre running for mayor. The basis of which came from a question that a reporter had asked Aguirre on "Why doesn't he just run against Sanders in next year's mayor's race?" Aguirre said he didn't want to be mayor and responded that "I love being city attorney." [Link]

Now, I know there are many people in the press that enjoyed covering the ongoing "slap fight" between the two citywide elected officials. But I really do hope this stays as dueling press conferences between Jerry Sanders and Mike Aguirre and doesn't become dueling political campaigns.

Aguirre needs to make sure he can continue as City Atty. before he sets his sights higher. Shredding docs and stonewalling the city's ability to fund itself do not a responsible elected official make.

Well it would be interesting race. Of course that means the City Attorney's race would be wide open...

...which wouldn't be a bad thing so long as Dumanis doesn't try to install a puppet into the City Attorney's office.
