For more than two years, Bob Filner has ducked out of public life.
He moved to Los Angeles and shied away from cameras and reporters following the scandals that knocked him out of the mayor’s office.
So I was surprised to get an email from the former mayor last week.
Filner, once chair of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, wanted to offer his perspective on veteran homelessness, a cause San Diego’s fallen behind in combating. We scheduled a call.
