Everything points to Alioto-Pier suing The City 

On Thursday, District 2 Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier sent a letter to Elections Department director John Arntz asking him to “reconsider” his decision not to recognize her as a possible candidate in the District 2 race.

Alioto-Pier has long argued she should be allowed to run for re-election, while City Attorney Dennis Herrera has said that based on the City Charter Alioto-Pier is termed out of office.

Alioto-Pier asked Arntz to respond by June 15 or she would be forced to sue. That response came Friday. City Attorney Dennis Herrera, responding on Arntz’s behalf, said Alioto-Pier “is ineligible to serve another term as District Two Supervisors, and the Department of Elections cannot list her on the November 2, 2010 ballot as a candidate for that office.” Herrera says the reasons are spelled out in his February 2008 memo.

The letter was address to Alioto-Pier’s attorney, Jim Sutton, who is representing Alioto-Pier in this matter.
