Wieboldt Takes Aim At Councilwoman Sterling

LA MESA – Even before the final vote totals were tallied in Tuesday’s election, a key supporter of Mayor Art Madrid took aim at one of Madrid’s political opponents.
Jim Wieboldt, a San Diego County Sheriff’s employee and part of Madrid’s kitchen cabinet, filed papers to begin pursuing what he says will be a race against City Council member Ruth Sterling, who would be up for re-election in 2012. Sterling was instrumental in Laura Lothian’s unsuccessful challenge against Madrid.
Wieboldt planned a Wednesday afternoon press conference at City Hall to formally announce his intention to challenge Sterling. Sterling has not yet announced whether she will be seeking re-election.
Wieboldt spent much of the last few days campaigning for Madrid and incumbents Mark Arapostathis and Ernie Ewin, including driving through the city in his retired fire truck with the incumbents’ signs plastered on each side.

Let's hope people are kinder to you during your campaign than you were to them during theirs. Just once, I'd like to see an election, at ANY level of government, that manages to keep the mudslinging and hate politics at bay. We shall see...
