There are a few circumstances that have severely mitigated how well and time-sensitive I have been writing recently. Between Hanukkah and Final Exams, I do not have much extra time, which means I am quite late with this one, so my apologies.
Off the Kuff is reporting that Rick Noriega will not run in the special election for SD06, which has yet to be called. This announcement leaves Sylvia Garcia and Carol Alvarado as the only remaining Democratic candidates in the heavily liberal district. Also, that “poll” that Councilmember Rodriguez was talking about, I could never find it, though I heard it was released by Bob Stein at Rice, who tends to be somewhat accurate.
