In the wake of San Diego Councilmember Donna Frye’s announcement earlier in the week that she will not run against 4th District County Supervisor Ron Roberts, San Diego Unified School Board President Shelia Jackson is now opting to enter the race.
Jackson started the nomination paperwork with the County Registrar of Voters office today.
Jackson had previously considered running, but had opted out a few months ago, presumably not wanting to split votes with fellow Democrat Frye and potentially bolster Republican Roberts’ re-election chances.
With Frye out, it re-paves the way for Jackson to take on Roberts in a possible one-to-one contest. The filing deadline is March 12.
