Just the last few days…

Wednesday, from Kristin Gaspar:

“Assemblyman Rocky Chavez made it official with an endorsement of my campaign for Supervisor.

“I am so honored to have Rocky’s support. His commitment to public service, distinguishing himself in the Marine Corps and then recommitting himself to public service as an elected official is truly commendable, and I look forward to working with him as a member of the Board of Supervisors.”

Dave Roberts cannot be forced out of office, not easily anyway. A San Diego County supervisor must vacate a seat one of three ways: willingly or due to untimely demise, for which a replacement process exists, take their chances come election time, or possibly face a recall effort.

Sounds like it if the new Council President Todd Gloria gets his way. The North County Times reports:

New SD Council President Pitches Tax Increase

Neither new mayor nor council offer immediate reaction to $900 millon proposal

The new president of the San Diego City Council — rising Democratic star Todd Gloria — said he wants to put before city voters a proposed tax hike that would address a nearly $900 million backlog of infrastructure projects.

Gloria announced his idea during Monday’s inauguration speech for his second term. Hours later, his council colleagues unanimously elected him president — a key position at City Hall that allows him to set the panel’s agenda.
