Weekend Recap - Bersin for City Attorney?
So, the e-mails were on fire this weekend. Apparently, there has been a pretty concerted effort by the Republican downtown establishment to court former School Superintendent Alan Bersin to run against City Attorney Mike Aguirre. Rumor has it, Bersin has decided to do it. A source in labor says the teachers union will go nuts, spending upwards of half a million dollars to ensure Bersin does not get back into office. He would be picketed everywhere he goes. I can't imagine why Bersin would want to subject himself to the constant ridicule of 10,000 San Diego public school teachers. I guess its a good strategy to cause a war in labor - you would have quite a few of the unions fighting each other over who was worse: Aguirre or Bersin.
