"Thin Skin" Rose Hererra vs. "Lucky Boy" Jimmy Nguyen

With a campaign reaching $1 million spending mark and probably the costliest city council race in the history of San Jose,  it will come down to this -  Should the citizens of San Jose vote for a candidate that support pension reform  to show that they really care how  their hard earned money being taxed and spent by the local government?

The incumbent Rose Hererra has a checkered personal history of fiscal irresponsibility and of course a second rate temperament.   She is legendary for her prima donna behavior among the Asian communities.  " I am a city councilwoman therefore, I should be treated like a queen to all events" .    She needs to remember that she is nothing but a low level public servant that can be kicked out of office anytime.   If it was not for her support of the pension reform, this race would not be even competitive.

Now the Vietnamese-American's "Lucky Boy"  Jimmy Nguyen of course happens to be at the right place at the right time.   His campaign was going nowhere and he was clueless on issues.  However, the puppet master Dave Cortese and the powerful unions cannot stand Mayor Chuck Reed.   It is a proxy political battle that they wave and if Jimmy Nguyen wins, he will be their pawn for the next 8 years.  

So San Jose voters,  what would it be?  The revival of unions and their ways by electing Jimmy Nguyen or keeping a second rate city councilwoman and sending a message about how they want their money to be spent?

The election will be a close one.   From preliminary absentee ballot numbers,  LSI is expecting anywhere from 20,000 to 24,000 total ballots.   If the turn-out is more than 21,000 ballots,  Rose will win.
