City Employees To Hold Anti-Aguirre Rally at Democratic Meeting
City of San Diego employees, retirees, and their families plan to rally against City Attorney Mike Aguirre at the County Democratic Central Committee meeting Tuesday evening, Jan. 8, at the State of California Building on Front Street. The employees will be hoping to block the Democrats' possible endorsement of Aguirre for his second run for office, if he decides to run. Aguirre, of course, has tried to get City employees' excessive benefits reduced because the City is in dire financial straits. The Municipal Employees Union has opposed him at every step, including in court. Normally, Democrats back labor, but Aguirre and Councilmember Donna Frye, both Democrats, have put the City's interest first. Aguirre has incurred the enmity of Big Business, Big Labor and Big Media.
