SIGN ON SAN DIEGO
November 14, 2006
Scott Peters won re-election yesterday as president of the San Diego City Council.
His council colleagues voted unanimously to support Peters for a second one-year term, in a widely expected move.
Peters, who has been on the council since 2000, became president Jan. 1 after the city switched to a strong-mayor form of government. The change split city government into legislative and executive branches.
As president of the eight-member council, Peters dockets issues for consideration, appoints the chairs of council committees and runs council meetings.
Peters, a moderate Democrat, represents District 1, which takes in the northwestern portion of the city, including Carmel Valley, Torrey Hills, Rancho Peñasquitos, University City and La Jolla.
