Your  Republican    SD   Supervisors

Dianne Jacob, who grew up and attended schools in her East County district,
will apparently seek a new term in office. Supervisor Jacob filed a Form 501
“Candidate Intention” statement in the last 24 hours, clearing the decks for a
re-election bid.

Ms. Jacob was last re-elected in 2008, with 77% of the vote, against an
active and energetic challenge by Rudy Reyes of Santee. Mr. Reyes was
endorsed by the San Diego Democratic party.

Republicans enjoy a 5-0 majority on the County Board of Supervisors,
in contrast to the 6-3 Democratic majority on the S.D. City Council.

Supervisor Jacob would be heavily favored to win again in her conservative East County balliwick.

  1. I’ll be voting FOR her and against the SEIU sponosored measure for term limits. Once again, I call for SEIU to clean up their act and bring about term limits for their own officers.

  2. Agreed on the 6-2 number, as the Mayor is now the executive branch in a strong mayor system.

    East County Magazine: Same thing Supervisor Jacob says regularly; planning to run again. Filing papework is more formal than that, as she can now fundraise with a 501 completed.
