Leslie Devaney, who ran against Mike Aguirre for City Attorney in 2004, says:
"Until the public understands the role of the city attorney, I'm not ready to run for the position again."*
Translation: As long as people think the City Attorney is supposed to represent ALL the people, and not merely protect the people in office, she won't be a part of it.
