The coming two recovery years in District 4 will depend on the work done by a councilmember with no name. Voting officials will make short work of replacing former council president Tony Young who officially resigned on January 1st to take a position at the American Red Cross.
The new officeholder will have to keep up the work done by Young on adding tot he jobs count n a southeast San Diego undermined by the recession in efforts to turn local community markets into productive markets with jobs, and restore city services left forfeited in the post Young period.
Investments made in the neighborhoods have not guaranteed the local workers will gain the jobs the need in the long run. Unemployment remains unbeaten and wearily slow to stamp out.
District staff will handle daily work still owed to the constituents the full twelve weeks between the January 1st resignation ant the Tuesday, March 26th special election the city council agreed to make official on Monday, January 7th. Todd Gloria will do Young's council work during the time the District 4 seat stays vacant.
Voters might get the opportunity to mark out the new officeholders for both the District 4 vacancy and the state vacancy in the 40th Senate district given up by Congressman Juan Vargas at the same special election. Governor Brown decides the day the 40th distinct vote will get counted.
