“Barbara’s career accomplishments in economic, legislative, educational and cultural arenas have already moved our City forward. She’s been at the forefront of bringing the innovation economy and its high paying jobs to San Diego and was the only Council member to actively support the SDSU West ballot initiative. She’s got the courage to resist special interest pressures, instead prioritizing expanding higher education and career opportunities for San Diegans from all communities.”
Barbara Bry understands the negative impact short-term rentals have on San Diego’s housing supply —driving up San Diego’s already astronomical housing costs. She understands that the conversion of residential dwellings to short-term rentals is a violation of law, and that Mayor Faulconer’s refusal to enforce the law is both a failure of governance and a fundamental breach of the public trust.
“Nothing says Barbara like creator, she did that with Athena and Run Women Run and today those are the top women empowerment groups in San Diego. If we want businesses to come to San Diego and prosper and create new job growth, we need a proven job creator and that’s Barbara Bry”
"Not all San Diegans have the same struggles, but all deserve the same resources, support, and access to opportunity – that is why I am supporting Barbara Bry for Mayor. She is a longtime advocate for ensuring that the underserved communities get what they need and deserve! Electing Bry to the office means having a Mayor for all of San Diego. Plus I know of no bigger lover of the arts community. She knows that San Diego must be a city that values recreation, art, and culture in order to thrive and grow."
“San Diego needs a mayor who has the experience to run a major city and the courage to do the right thing. I know from personal experience that Barbara Bry will stand up and fight for what’s right, not the most politically expedient.”
“Barbara Bry is one of the very few public servants who has created products and services that result in the employment of many. She is the rare case of someone who understands the role of government and business in working together to do what’s right for a community’s citizens, not just for the moment, but for decades to come.”
I will bring leadership that puts solutions for San Diegans first, prioritizes fiscal discipline, stands up to the special interests, treats all residents and communities fairly, and creates comprehensive solutions to long-standing problems.
We’re all in this together. Are you interested in making real the promise of a just and fair community for all San Diegans?
