This should not be a surprise to anyone who has followed Pacific Grove politics even slightly: All three of the P.G. City Council members with terms ending in November opted not to run for re-election.
It’s also good that a large crop of candidates is competing for the chance to replace the departing trio. All eight are capable, to varying degrees, but three rise to the top: Ken Cuneo, Carmelita Garcia and Bill Kampe.
Calls Susan Goldbeck irrevocably tied to P.G. politics of the past, Dan Miller an activist, Richard Ahart a mystery, Deborah Lindsay narrow focused and says David Dilworth has no credibility.
