SAN DIEGO - Former Assemblywoman Lori Saldana will be throwing her support behind San Diego City Councilman David Alvarez in the race for the San Diego mayor, a source told 10News.
Saldana had taken out the initial paperwork to run for mayor but never finished the process.
Additional details will be revealed in a press conference scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. at the North Claremont Community Park and Recreation Center.
Alvarez officially launched his campaign for mayor last week and has received an endorsement from the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council.
So far, 38 people have filed paperwork signaling their intention to run for mayor in the Nov. 19 special election to replace Bob Filner, who resigned in disgrace at the end of last month. The latest, filing Monday, was Alexis Allen.
The candidates have until Friday to turn in petitions with at least 200 valid signatures and a $500 filing fee.
