Union-Tribune Picks Hall, Packard, and Douglas

by The Editors on September 30, 2010

When newspapers write opinion pieces it becomes immediately apparent who really runs their businesses. For instance, today, the San Diego Union-Tribune released their picks for Carlsbad’s mayoral and city council races. For mayor they break it down by Prop G:

If there’s an issue that defines the two [Hall and Blackburn], it is Proposition G, a measure to lock recent pension reforms into the city charter and to prevent any increases in employee retirement benefits without a vote of the people. Hall has co-signed the argument for Prop. G. Blackburn, a former police sergeant, opposes it. That speaks volumes as to which each candidate would put first, the people or the city’s labor unions.

And for City Council they pick Mark Packard (because he’s already on the council) and Farrah Douglas (because she made a respectable showing in her first try for office two years ago). At least we agree with one of their picks.
