Nine days after announcing he would, he decided he won’t.
La Mesa Councilman Dave Allan said today he will not vie for the 79th State Assembly seat. “With my family commitments and my dad’s ill health, I’ve decided this is not the right time to run for Assembly,” he said.
Allan announced during a city council meeting last week he would seek the seat, as an independent, following stints as both a Republican and a Democrat.
Announced candidates for the seat include Chula Vista City Councilman Rudy Ramirez, former San Diego Unified Schools Trustee Shirley Weber, and activist Sid Voorakkara, all Democrats.
