Endorsing Souza would be a losing proposition, after supporting the raising of the Chinese flag, voting in favor of red light cameras and taking money from California Waste Solutions (CWS), Souza is likely to come out third on the race, behind Dan Dillman.

San Leandro City Council member Diana Souza is playing the old "will I, won't I" game vis a vis running for Mayor.
On the one hand, she has been seeking the endorsement of highly placed Democrats. On the other hand, when asked in so many words whether she's running for Mayor, she's denied it.
While it's likely that what she is doing is trying to assess whether she can garner enough political support to mount a credible challenge to Mayor Stephen Cassidy, she hurts her credibility by not being straight about it. If she does decide to run, that lack of honesty may come to haunt her.
...
Souza may feel she can exploit this vulnerability. However, Souza's right wing ideology - she has opposed everything from urban farming to marijuana dispensaries to even discussing services for the homeless, while pushing for restricting civil liberties in town - is not likely to be well received within Democratic circles. Souza's insistence that the flag of the People's Republic of China be flown over City Hall, also suggest that she has very poor political instincts. Anyone endorsing Souza does so at their own peril.
Souza's greatest problem, however, is that she is not actually a viable candidate for Mayor. Not only does she not have a base (though she will lean heavily on Benny Lee's connections within the Chinese community), but she has accomplished nothing in the seven years she has served in City Council. She ran with the single purpose of building a competitive swimming pool in San Leandro, but was unable to get this done due to opposition by the public. who wanted WW funds spent on a variety of projects. Since then, she's had no initiatives and has served as a vote for the Police Department.
Souza also suffers from a lack of campaign experience. She ran in 2006 against Julian Polvorosa., an elderly barber and former Council member who had been pushed to run by former colleagues and showed no desire to actually be elected. Souza did a good job of putting signs around town and getting relatives to drop off some fliers, but didn't need to create the grass root organization that pushed Cassidy into his 2010 win. She ran for re-election unopposed.
Souza will likely receive the support of the Police Union if she runs for Mayor.
