Too bad the *REAL* crook on the council is not up for re-election.

When is Mr. Bill Horn's term up?

He has done more to soil the credibility of the County Board of Supervisors than anyone I can think of.

Are we so blind as to how we have let not only Republicans control the County Board of Supervisors but they are all white and above a certain age? Does this really reflect our County? Where are our people of color? Where is the gay voice? People of San Diego, we should not let this continue if we want to see our City and it's county prosper into the 21st Century!!!!!!
