San Diego Councilman Will Deploy To Iraq As Reservist

Posted: Updated:
CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) - A city councilman from Chula Vista who is a lieutenant in the Navy reserves will deploy to Iraq for a year.

Councilman John McCann said Monday he will leave next month to serve alongside an Army unit.

McCann, 41, will resume his role on the council upon his return to Chula Vista, a San Diego County city of about 225,000 people. Until then, he says an interim appointment will likely be made.

McCann has served on the council since 2002.
