Re-Elect Sherri Lightner for City Council

Dear friend,

My opponent and his big money downtown and developer insider friends have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars sending you a barrage of negative mail filled with falsehoods about my record as your councilmember.

I hope you are like me and believe the facts still matter. 

Here are the facts:  

FACT:  My pension is not $500,000, and it is certainly not $500,000 in taxpayer funds.  My pension would be less than $10,000 per year, and that includes my contribution, the city’s contribution, and all the interest generated over the next several decades.

FACT:  I have already committed to giving up my pension and moving to a 401(k) now that Prop B has been approved.

FACT:  I have cut my pay by 9 percent and am the lowest paid Councilmember -- by far:

FACT:  I voted to END the Bid to Goal program that would give bonuses to Water Department employees. (See Voice of San Diego Fact Check.)

FACT: I have never raised taxes -- never, not one dime.

Those are the facts.

I have always prided myself on being honest with voters because I believe that is the only way we can move this city forward -- together.

If you see or hear something about me that doesn’t sound accurate, please contact me right away so I can set the record straight.

I need your help to spread the truth about my opponent’s lies.  Please share this information with your friends and neighbors. 

I hope you'll vote for me on November 6.
