Mitz Lee Out of the Running

It looks as though the race for City Council District 5 just became a solo venture. According to The Reader, current school board member Mitz Lee has decided to forgo a run for City Council. Instead, Lee intends to stay on as school board member and will run for re-election. Now, Carl DeMaio is the lone candidate in the District 5 race. Hopefully, someone will step up and give DeMaio a good run.

It was a three-person race. Now with Mitz Lee gone, Bob Ilko and Carl deMaio remain.

Mitz Lee is running for re-election on the school board. Did Mitz Lee make a statement as to why she left the city council race and instead went for the school board again?

Mitz Lee said she was going back to the school board race "because the district needs me." Interesting that she made that decision when her fundraisers said that she was having a hard time raising funds against DeMaio. Now it looks as though she could lose her school board race, too.

mitz lee is done. according to this other site she's going to "get her clock cleaned" this election. Her opponent is much more well spoken and has a lot of good ideas. Even though I voted MITZ LEE last time, there's no way I can vote for her again with a clean conscience after all this.

if you agree with me, share this pretty hilarious 3 minute video:
