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.
