Democrat Ed Harris represented Ocean Beach and Point Loma and the rest of
District 2 for most of 2014 as an interim councilman. While on the City Council, he
continued his support for labor issues, as well as community issues. He took issue
with the City contracts with businesses leasing Belmont Park, popularizing the view
that the City wasn’t getting enough out of the deal. His efforts were overturned later
by Councilwoman Lorie Zapf, who won the seat in the primary.
