Remy Bermudez to run for District 8 seat

Remy Bermudez has announced her intent to challenge Ben Hueso to represent District 8, City of San Diego. In her press release she stated: “After numerous requests from District 8 residents urging me to run again for the 8th Council District, I have decided to pick up my paperwork for the upcoming District 8 election in June.

“Nothing has changed since the special election:  The needs are the same, the services are scarce and the budget priorities for 2006-2007 put forth by the 8th District City councilmember appear to favor the special interests which put him in office, maintaining the status quo of District 8’s institutional neglect and business as usual.”
