We continue a series of interviews with candidates for San Diego mayor.
The special election on Nov. 19 is set to choose a successor to serve out the term of former Mayor Bob Filner.
There are 10 candidates who have qualified for the ballot. A recent 10News/Survey USA poll found the top four candidates to be, in alphabetical order: Mike Aguirre, David Alvarez, Kevin Faulconer and Nathan Fletcher.
Today we'll ask former San Diego City Attorney Mike Aguirre why he's running for mayor and about his priorities for the city.
Aguirre served as city attorney from 2004 to 2008. He is now in private practice. He is one of three prominent Democrats running for mayor. Aguirre has received no major endorsements.
