New Candidate in District 5?

Well, I guess it is official. Republican Carl Demaio will face a serious challenger in d5. The County Clerk shows a George George pulled papers today. Funny name. But, he is legit. Has Jen Tierney as a consultant (think consultant to Bonnie Dumanis, Kevin Faulconer, Todd Gloria, Michael Zucchett, Firefighters) I hear he is a retired Fire Chief. Not bad for a district that just was so heavily affected by the fires. Also, I hear he is a VERY moderate. Perfect! Now, if only someone would start telling the truth about Carl Demaio. I anticipate that day will come.

George George is a Democrat. Translation: he's got no chance in hell in winning D5.

Carl is gonna love the soap box the fire union just gave him!

Carl doesn't need a free ride. He needs to work for his poistion like any real elected.

Tierney's just looking for a little extra money. She's been known to lose a competitive race as much as she's won one... and with this guy she's got an uphill battle! No way she has the brains to figure out a win for him.

Maybe its not about a win. Maybe its about principle.

So last night the Mira Mesa Town Council held a debate and George was a big NO SHOW. Too scared for a debate I guess!

What he did instead is he sent two fire fighter union goons (one with a camera). Gonna need more than a video of Carl to learn what Carl knows about city government.

The camera crew works for Carl!

So either the previous comment was intended to bait political animosity or simply someone not observant.
