More potential candidates surfaced recently to take the job now held by City Attorney Michael Aguirre.
According to unnamed sources in a Union Tribune story Feb. 14, City Council President Scott Peters has joined a crowded field in the June primary.
A call to Peters to confirm wasn’t returned.
Alan Bersin, former superintendent of the San Diego Unified School District and current chairman for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, said he is still mulling his options.
“I continue to monitor the situation and continue to watch developments,” he said. “I’ll be making my mind up before the deadline (for file for candidacy on March 6).”
Already committed to running to replace Aguirre are Superior Court Judge Jan Goldsmith, Councilman Brian Maienschein, and attorneys Lee Burdick, Dan Coffey and Amy Lepine.
Lepine, a former employee in the City Attorney’s office, is also suing Aguirre for sexual harassment.
According to local blog called Red County, a recent poll commissioned by Bersin shows Goldsmith beating Aguirre, with both Peters and Bersin coming in third place in separate races.
