WANT TO RUN FOR OFFICE? DEMOCRATS SEEK CANDIDATES AS FILING DEADLINES LOOM--WITH MANY TOP SEATS UNFILLED
February 3, 2010 (San Diego’s East County) – The filing deadline for some November races is just days away. Four Republicans have announced intentions to run for the 77th Assembly District currently held by Joel Anderson, but thus far no Democrat has thrown a hat in the ring. Likewise, Congressman Hunter faces an easy coast to victory for reelection this fall, since there’s no Democratic opponent for his seat, either. Many local seats including city councils, mayors, as well as school, planning, water and fire boards also have only Republican candidates--or vacancies with no candidates at all.
