Juan Vargas, California Assembly, 79th District
I rarely agree with the San Diego Union Tribune, but they got it right on Dec. 9, 2006, when they said that Juan Vargas' move from chairman of the California Assembly Insurance Committee to vice president of a big insurance company "stuns even jaded political junkies."
Juan seemed so promising at one time. He got a Juris Doctorate from Harvard Law School and worked in San Diego as an associate attorney with the law firm of Luce, Forward, Hamilton and Scripps.
Apparently, Juan has finally reached the level where he belongs. Do us a favor, Juan, and stay in insurance. Don't ever come back to politics.
