City insiders were abuzz Thursday over rumors of a potential major shakeup in Mayor Bob Filner’s top leadership team. It came amid a week of scandal and drama.
Deputy Chief of Staff Allen Jones was seen walking out of City Hall with officers. Jones is the long-time Filner ally who, as a developer and lobbyist, is an expert on land-use. He’s a key liaison to the business and development communities.
But I appeared at an event Thursday with Filner and pulled him aside after to see if he could clear it up.
