  • The big-money brawl between Bill Horn and Jim Wood for county supervisor has begun.

The race by Republican county supervisor Bill Horn to hold on to his seat against a challenge by Oceanside mayor Jim Wood is off with a financial bang, with backers of both sides lining up big funding for hefty TV and mail drives. Latest big-money players include the Service Employees International Union Local 221’s “Citizens Against Career Insider Politician Bill Horn for Supervisor 2014,” which reported spending a total of $17,275 on canvassing, polling, and door hangers on April 7. On April 20, the county Republican Party rolled into the race with $8500 worth of “member communications.”

What a choice. We get to decide if we want yet another term from this fat old guy who votes with the developer/establishment cabal. Our alternative is the mayor of one of the three worst governed and run cities in the county, and he's bought and paid for by the municipal employees unions. Those are the same unions who have helped the process of polarization in Oceanside along to a point where their city council is a nest of vipers. Those unions will not quit until they elect someone of their liking. The developers? Pretty much the same thing. Isn't there an independent candidate out there who might not be beholden to either group?
