I fully support the Mayor. The Democrats in this county are selling him down the river, and they're going to pay when developers regain City Hall and destroy the environment and the unions. They are playing right into the GOP's hands. I vow now to never vote for another Democrat in a local race, ever again.

The so called leaders who are supporting the call for the mayor to resign are puppets with unclean hands and hidden agendas. Frye is obviously still bitter, and even more so, since clearly Filner is doing a better job than she ever could have. Atkins isn't even on the City Council anymore. Gonzalez and Gonzalez have financial incentives. Goldsmith has been clashing with Filner ever since he got into office. Saldana I wouldn't trust as far as I could throw her. Alvarez has been a disappointment ever since he supported Jacobs Folly. And speaking of Jacobs Folly, Jacobs and Gloria must be doing a happy dance at the thought that Gloria might get to play Mayor for a few months during which time no doubt the monster Filner had killed will surely be resurrected. I dread to think of all the terrific damage that would be done in this city if Filner resigns. Don't do it, Bob, please. You've also got powerful allies on your side, and the citizens of San Diego support you too.

If anyone cares to start a page on Facebook, pls let me know, I'll do all I can to support it.

I don't blame him for hesitating, but I don't think anyone should expect Donna Frye to run. Whether you believe she showed poor judgement or saved the City, she thrust herself into the center of a sordid scandal, then hid from questions. I hope we haven't seen the last of her politically, but a mayoral run now would be a terrible mistake. She will forever be linked to the current scamdal, and would be dogged by the questions she's ducking.

There are others who should consider running, the left lacks a well known candidate, and the city is moving left. DeMaio and Fletcher are proven losers, so deeply flawed that Mike Aguirre has a chance even after the thorough smear he endured.

Psycholizard: The Union-Tribune will smear Aguirre unmercifully. This is a publication whose main objective is to hype the corporate welfare projects that will line the pockets of its owner, Papa Doug Manchester.

I admire Mike Aguirre's courage. I also agree with his plan for San Diego. Best, Don Bauder
