San Diego council races in Districts 4, 6, 8 overshadowed by heated District 2 race

San Diego City Council matches in Tuesday’s qualifiers for Districts 4, 6 and 8 have been overshadowed by the highly competitive match for District 2.

This is mainly due to the fact that not much seems to be at stake on Tuesdays in Regions 4, 6 and 8.

In District 4, the current Monica Montgomery Steppe is expected to easily finish first in qualifying. Voters will decide which of its two contenders – Gloria Evangelista or Tylisa Suseberry – will face the seemingly monumental task of winning the Montgomery Steppe in the second round in November.

Neither Evangelista nor Suseberry have much name recognition or have raised a lot of money.

Area 4 covers much of southeastern San Diego, including Encanto, Skyline, and Paradise Hills.

In District 8, incumbent Vivian Moreno and challenger Antonio Martinez are the only two candidates on the ballot, so the two Democrats are almost certain to advance to the run-off in November.

A sign-up campaign is the only threat, and there has been no noise about it. The second round will be a rematch of the second round of 2018 in District 8, where Moreno defeated Martinez with 549 votes, 14,950 against 14,401.

Area 8 includes Sherman Heights, Barrio Logan, Otay Mesa and San Ysidro.

District 6 offers slightly more drama, with Republican Jane Glasson and Democrats Tommy Hough and Kent Lee vying to replace elected council member Chris Cate – the council’s only remaining Republican.

But because Glasson has not raised much money or received her party’s approval, Lee and Hough are considered virtual padlocks to advance to a run-off in November.

Lee, who runs in the city’s heaviest Asian quarter, is considered a favorite to beat Hough in November. But Hugh, who lost to Kate in the second round of 2018, has strong support from local environmentalists and progressives.

District 6 includes Mira Mesa, University City, the Convoy District of Kearny Mesa and some surrounding areas.
