Open council seat attracts 9 candidates

city-council-sd-11-sealSAN DIEGO — Nine candidates have filed nominations papers to run in the March 26 special election for the open San Diego City Council seat in District 4, the City Clerk’s office reported Friday.

Today at 5 p.m. is the deadline for filing the papers, which must include 100 valid signatures of supporters. The signatures are verified by the city clerk’s staff before candidates officially qualify for the ballot.

The hopefuls include:

If someone wins over 50 percent of the vote, they will take the office outright. Otherwise, the top two voter-getters will face each other in a runoff.

The eventual winner will replace Tony Young, who resigned after six years in office to become CEO of the San Diego and Imperial Counties chapter of the American Red Cross.

    It says, "…hopefuls include:…" but gives no names. The city clerk's office has it as 14 filing 501 forms, 11 having pulled nomination papers, 6 having given them back, 1 as having been qualified already as of 1/24 Thur. Where's the 9 come from? Is there better info from the city else where? If so please cite.

    Thank You
