Fabian Wesson, wife of City Councilman (and former Speaker) Herb Wesson, has opened a committee to explore running for the Assembly in 2010 when Speaker-elect Karen Bass is termed out, says editorial writer Rob Greene at the Times' Opinion blog.
Fabian Wesson is no stranger to Sacramento or Los Angeles politics. She is a consultant to Mervyn Dymally, the assemblyman-turned-senator-turned-lieutenant-governor-turned-congressman who is now back in the Assembly and running to go back to the Senate. Wesson also is a member of the Coliseum Commission and the California Science Center board.
Fabian (pronounce it FAY-bee-an, like the teen idol of the 1950s and '60s, not FAH-bee-an, like the current speaker) Wesson said she's still thinking over whether to pursue the seat, especially since she now has Herb home full-time after his six years of jetting to Sacramento and back.
Herb's name continues to come up as a possible successor (or is that challenger?) to Eric Garcetti as president of the City Council.
