Attorney Bryan Pease moved to University City in January this year and entered the District 1 City Council race for one reason.
“It’s not that I have an ambition to be on the City Council,” Pease said in an interview. “It’s that I don’t think Sherri (Lightner) should go unchallenged.”
His frustration with the incumbent councilwoman, a fellow Democrat, stems from the hot-button issue Pease is best known for fighting in court. He successfully halted the removal of harbor seals from the Children’s Pool in La Jolla.
