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 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 has never championed after-school programs and these, indeed, were cut while she was in the Council. At the last City Council meeting, Souza argued that the School District, and not the City, should pay for school resource officers; she has also voted to cut crossing guards.
Questionable Claims:
In the "Parents for Progress" paid slate mailer, Souza claims to have "been good for both our school districts, funding joint projects. However, Souza has often spoken out against the City providing any funds to the School District, even to maintain facilities used exclusively for the City.
...
Souza also takes credit for many "accomplishments" that are questionable at best. The Council "added resource officers" but Souza now favors making the School District pay for them. The Council might have increased city programs for youth, but only to cut them later. The Council may have expanded shuttle programs, but she has voted and/or spoken against the Links shuttle since she was elected. The Council had historically funded crossing guards, only to cut them in 2010, and then restore them but only after the School District agreed to share the costs. As far as I know, there are no neighborhood police beats - at least not any visible ones around here -, but if there are, they would be because of the Police Chief, not anything that Souza has done. She might have voted to adopt transit oriented development plans, the same ones which the Council used to block Grocery Outlet form using the former Albertson's site, but these have fallen apart, which is why "The Village" was able to be constructed.
Souza has not brought new shopping and dining opportunities to town, unless she means she did so by approving Village Marketplace, which will feature a fast food burger joint. And if she brought back the Cherry Festival and the Tree lighting (Sausage & Suds is not funded by the City) before Cutter joined the Council, it was only to cut them again, as neither took place in 2010.
Her only role in the other accomplishments she lists was to vote for them.
Empty Promises: Souza has a long list of things we need to do. However, she's been in the Council for 8 years without fulfilling them.
I e-mailed Diana Souza to ask for clarification on these claims, but did not hear back.

...
The race for San Leandro Mayor features four candidates: City Council members Pauline Cutter and Diana Souza, theater owner Dan Dillman and former police officer Gregg Daly, who is running as a "write-in" candidate.
...
Originally, I thought the real race was between Cutter and Souza, with Cutter as the likely winner.
...
However, Souza has been plagued by scandals, including taking money from California Waste Solutions, supporting the raising of the Chinese flag and continuing to support red-light cameras.
...
That may be enough to knock Souza into third place.
The particularities of ranked choice voting make it possible for voters to vote their conscience while still not wasting their vote on candidates that are unlikely to win. In this case, a voter can comfortably vote for Gregg Daly and Dan Dillman first and second and Pauline Cutter third, knowing that if Souza does make it to the last round, their vote will count for Cutter.
...
I don't think the same of Diana Souza.
...
Diana Souza originally ran for City Council to try to get a competitive pool built in Washington Manor. When that proved to be an unpopular expenditure of taxpayer money, she retreated and has since taken direction on how to vote from other Councilmembers and, later, from the Police Chief / City Manager. Not surprisingly, she is endorsed by the police union. Souza has also shown quite an antipathy to collaborating with the schools, and has voted in an extremely conservative manner: in favor of flying the Chinese flag over San Leandro, in favor of red light cameras and surveillance cameras, against marijuana dispensaries and in favor of restricting entertainment in San Leandro. Souza has the support of the owners of California Waste Solutions, who also seem ready to try to take over San Leandro's garbage contract as well.

Council member Diana Souza had long made the rounds trying to garner support for a campaign. She hadn't been very successful, but with Cassidy out of the way she has a shot. Souza, however, was one of the candidates who voted to raise the Chinese flag over San Leandro City Hall, a very unpopular move with voters. She has, otherwise, a non-existent record of accomplishments.

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'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.

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.
