Daily Review Endorses Gregory and Souza for City Council

In an op-ed published on June 3, 2006, The Daily Review endorsed Michael Gregory for San Leandro's District 1 City Council seat and Diana Souza for San Leandro's District 3 City Council Seat.

Souza is running against Julian Polvorosa and Nathan Kleinstein for the District 3 City Council seat. Polvorosa has name recognition, but Souza has definitely been making more of an effort to be involved in city events and meet potential voters. Souza, for example, attended the San Leandro School District community meeting at San Leandro High School on May 31, 2006, the San Leandro Community Action Network Mayoral Candidate Forum at Zocalo Coffeehouse on June 1, 2006, and the Downtown Development community meeting on June 3, 2006, while Polvorosa was notably absent.

After Lynn dropped out of the race on Thursday, June 1, 2006, Gregory will take over the City Council seat from OB Badger, who is running for Mayor. Bill Stephens ran unopposed for the District 5 City Council seat. Stephens and Gregory will have to wait until 2007 join the City Council.
