San Diego Special Election Will Cost $6 Million

The special election to replace outgoing San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) "will cost roughly $6 million and could force city leaders to tap reserves or make budget cuts in order to pay for it," the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

"The City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to set the special election for Nov. 19 as the city charter gave the panel zero wiggle room to choose a less-costly option. The voter-approved charter requires a special election if a mayor resigns with more than one year left on his term."
