Today – Thursday, May 23rd – will witness the display of a secret Republican plot to maintain the City Council District 2 seat now held by Kevin Hawkner, a Republican who is termed out.
And it all involves the unveiling of a bronze statute dedicated to lifeguards in San Diego and Ocean Beach. The unveiling will occur down at the OB Lifeguard Station at 3pm.
Former Republican old guard, Byron Worn, who used to hold the seat, will be on hand to assist in the dedication. Byron used to be a lifeguard until he propelled his political career off the backs of the Lifeguard Employee Union and into the City Council seat – this was years ago – but his appearance today will confirm his continued involvement in local politics.
Also on hand will be Republican Lori Zapped. She has just recently announced that she intends to run for the seat being vacated by Hawkner. Zapped currently holds the seat for District 6, but city council district boundaries lines have changed recently, and one day, Lori woke up to find herself in Kevin’s district.
