Got this in my inbox today from the “Steve Francis: I really want to run for something but there doesn’t seem to be much need for me, afterall” Campaign:
Dear Fellow San Diegans:
As you may know, I have formed the Francis For Mayor Exploratory Committee to start a conversation with the citizens of San Diego to learn about their concerns and the issues they feel need to be addressed by City Hall in these difficult times.
Recently, I accepted an invitation to sit down with Bob Kittle, the Editorial Page Editor of the San Diego Union-Tribune to discuss these issues on his inaugural radio program, “Talk of San Diego”. During our candid interview, we discussed issues ranging from the pension crisis, to the influence of special interests and the political climate at City Hall. Most importantly, I fielded questions from San Diegans seeking my thoughts on how to restore confidence in our government. You can listen to the interview by clicking here.
Also, I will be appearing on a news segment with reporter Steve Bosh on KUSI News tonight on the 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. news broadcasts. During both interviews with Mr. Bosh and Mr. Kittle, you’ll find that I remain committed to real change for San Diego. Our City deserves representatives with the courage to lead, and who are willing to put public policy before partisan politics.
Currently I am meeting with many San Diegans from all parties, business and labor, town councils, regional chambers of commerce, community associations, business improvement districts and others. So far, what I am hearing is that something is amiss at City Hall and we need new leadership.
I would like to hear from you regarding what you believe are the most important problems San Diego faces and your ideas for resolving these issues. Please feel free to email me with your thoughts or concerns at email@example.com, or call me at (858) 320-7500. Working together, we can solve San Diego’s problems and share in a brighter future for our City.

I wonder how much family moola Stevo’s missus is gonna let him pony up this time around, against an increasingly entrenched incumbent supported by their party?
Then again, Sanders has had public support and power in his hands before and let it all slip through his kindly yet politically inept fingers. Maybe Francis is hanging in there long enough to see if Jerry jumbles things again?
