Campaign season has officially begun, for me anyway, now that I have seen my first campaign yard sign. Who was the lucky candidate who opened this season of politics for me? Lorie Zapf, running for City Council in the 6th to replace termed out Donna Frye. Not the best sign, her name could be a little bigger, but decent enough and it gets the job done.
I saw her sign Saturday taking a shortcut between those rainy day errands, and since then I’ve seen about seven or eight more. I saw another gray and red sign, but couldn’t figure out what is was for without stopping. It will be a bit out of the way but on my way home today I’ll swing by and take a closer look unless someone already knows what it is for?
As it stands now I think that the 6th Council District race is the only partisan competitive seat in the county this time around. I know the race itself is “non-partisan”, but I mean the only competitive race where a Democrat and Republican could square off in November and either have a real shot at it. Unless I’m technically wrong aren’t all four Sheriff candidates Republican? That means San Diego won’t see any seats potentially change party hands unless Zapf wins, other than the statewide races that is.
Well, after a few days of rain it looks like the sunshine is back tomorrow.
