Unofficial field for 2012 mayor’s race jockeying for position

The race for San Diego Mayor in 2012 is already at the starting gate as candidates and potential candidates jockey for position. The field includes an impressive roster of veteran officeholders.

District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis surprised just about everybody this week when she announced her opposition to the sweeping pension reform initiative devised by Mayor Jerry Sanders and Councilman Carl DeMaio. It takes away the guaranteed generous benefits from firefighters and lifeguards, but not the police, and puts them in a 401(K) plan along with all new city employees.
