At this point, there are 3 challengers to Councilwoman Lorie Zapf for the next election for the District 2 seat. Bay Ho resident Daniel Smiechowski, Jordan Beane, and Bryan Pease have all cast their hats into the ring for the district that includes Ocean Beach, Point Loma and much of the beach area, plus some area just east of Interstate 5.
“Centrist” Democrat Smiechowski, 63, is described as working in real estate and a longtime community volunteer. “I’ve been in this district for 50 years,” he told the press.
He told the press that he supports San Diego being a “sanctuary city” and backs short-term vacation rentals.“We don’t want development that isn’t smart development,” Smiechowski said. “We want development that benefits the community, in affordable housing and housing the homeless.”
Jordan Beane has been reportedly politically active in the PB Town Council, as well as various Democratic Party groups, including an environmental club.
