Christine Kehoe, has decided she’d like to return to city hall and again screw up the city. During her city council days, she backed the unjustified, retroactive pension increases — including a lame duck session where she granted herself a pension to start IMMEDIATELY after she was termed out of her city office.
This will be fun! Well, for me, anyway.
With her in the race, I get to revisit the good old days at city hall when only a handful of us were raising the alarm about coming disasters. The citizens need to hear this story of her culpability, over and over.

Sen. Christine Kehoe considering running for San Diego mayor
State Sen. Christine Kehoe announced today that she is weighing a run for San Diego mayor.
The San Diego Democrat said she will open an exploratory committee this week for the 2012 election, allowing her to begin raising money for a run. Kehoe who previously served on the San Diego City Council and represented the area in the Assembly, said in a statement that she has long “been committed to addressing our City’s problems with practical solutions.”
“The challenges San Diegans face together can be resolved. We need honest solutions that don’t cause more problems than they solve,” shes said in the statement. “Working together and using commonsense, we can get San Diego back on the right track.”
A crowded field of high-profile possible candidates for the open seat has already emerged, including San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, Democratic Rep. Bob Filner, GOP City Councilmen Kevin Faulconer and Carl DeMaio, and state Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, R-San Diego.
A release announcing the committee said Kehoe, who is termed out in 2012, will make her final decision at “a later time.”
