Should be retained, Bring's a very specialized expertise to the council that no other member has. And seem's to me to approach contentious agenda item's calmly and reasonably.

Jim King totally flip-flopped on the medical marijuana issue after an undisclosed 'closed session' council meeting. What was Jim's reasoning? "The Sheriff told him to..." 'Throw out the baby with the bath water!' And that's exactly what he did. After which, Jim became in lock step with Mayor Janney, who subsequently rewarded Jim with the appointment to SANDAG as the city's representative. Don't re-elect Jim King, he has proven that he is in it for himself, and he does not act or vote on behalf of the city's residents.

we don't need any more 'experts' in pillaging the city ed... i don't like this guy because his 'career' consists of taking government money.... he has sat there for the last 4 years and allowed the city manager to take over council...he gave up his own voice in council so i'd say he really doesn't want the job... "...General Building Contractor-J.D. King Construction..." every month we cut checks for dozens of different contractors....the construction industry doesn't not need their own personal lobbyist on the council.. the duties of the council is to run the city.... king's interests and alliances are not with the people of ib...
