This afternoon, David M. Allan of La Mesa filed a “Candidate Intention” statement to run for San Diego county supervisor, 2nd district, in 2012. The form is on file at the San Diego Voter Registrar. (La Mesa councilman Dave Allan is pictured at the Left.)
That may mean a race against the current incumbent, Republican Supervisor Dianne Jacob of Jamul, should she seek a new term.
David M. Allan is a registered Democrat according to Registrar records. This is likely La Mesa City Councilman Dave Allan. He was recently described by the Union-Tribune as “Dave Allan, who has spent a career promoting consolidation as firefighter, labor union leader and La Mesa councilman.”
You get the apparent picture here: conservative GOP Supervisor (Dianne Jacob) vs. labor union leader and Democrat (David Allan).
Repeat: IF this race happens, it will be in 2012, but it will be intriguing to watch if it actually occurs.
