Mineta Endorses Cindy Chavez; Chavez Outlines Disaster Plan

Saturday the Merc wrote this article regarding a Cindy Chavez appearance this past Friday. The article highlighted two significant developments:

(1) Cindy's 19-point disaster preparation plan; and

(2) the recent endorsement by Norm Minetta of Chavez.

On the eve of the 5 year anniversary of 9/11 and during the one year anniversary of Katrina, the topic of disaster seems increasingly more and more relevant. Nonetheless, the skeptic in me wonders - is any of this actually important to our city? I mean, SJ isn't exactly a top terrorist target nor is it known for its vulnerability to storms. But I bet folks in Oklahoma City probably humbly thought that they weren't at the top of the list of potential terrorist targets 12 years ago either. Additionally, it is questionable how secure San Jo's infrastructure would be if it faced another large earthquake. In any case, read the specifics of her plan here on her website. What did Mr. Reed have to say about her plan? Well, among other things: "Cindy's got some good ideas".

In other news, ex-Mayor Norman Mineta announced his endorsement of Chavez. What does this mean practically to the outcome of the election? It is unclear. Chavez already boasts a long list of endorsements. Do people even care? Well, Mineta is most recently known for his former role in the Bush administration as Secretary of Transportation. This bipartisanship may add credibility to Chavez and impact moderates in their search for the next Mayor.

Can I just ask WHO does endorse Chuck? I checked his website and couldn't find a single endorsement.

You dishonor the man by misspelling his name several times. It's Norman Y. Mineta, not "Minetta".
