More Politics

I am ecstatic that Cindy Chavez will not be mayor of San Jose. A large part of this is because in a non-partisan race she was heavily endorsed by the local Democratic party, including personal campaigning by some nationally known Demo personalities who had no right to a voice in this election, such as Bill Clinton and Gavin Newsom.

Chavez was vice mayor and fully responsible for the same closed-door policies which got mayor Ron Gonzales into trouble. She had ample opportunity to blow the whistle on the back room deals, but instead stayed silent, and who knows, maybe she benefited financially as did the mayor. Now that she is out of office, it would be appropriate for the city attorney to investigate. Heck, it would have been appropriate while she was still in office.

I don't know much about incoming mayor Chuck Reed, except he was not part of that cabal. And he won by a decisive 60%, despite being an Anglo running against a Hispanic in a heavily Hispanic city. And Chavez out-spending him by at least 2:1. I wish him luck. San Jose is at the brink of Becoming, and its leadership in the next few years will be the key.
