As the March 3rd municipal election approaches, expect to see more debates between candidates fighting for the more heated seats such as City Controller and Attorney. On February 12, the regional Valley Alliance of Neighborhood Councils is hosting a candidates forum. Everyone vying for a school board, controller or attorney seat is attending except one person. You probably would have guessed it without the headline or photo, it's 5th District Councilmember Jack Weiss, who is well-known for being the most absent and unreachable politician in the city and was subject of a failed citizen's recall attempt.
