The San Diego Union-Tribune Editorial Board interviewed four candidates in the San Diego mayoral race ahead of the March 3, 2020, primary election in which the top two vote-getters race will advance to a runoff election in November. Listen to our Jan. 9. 2020 interview with Barbara Bry on Soundcloud.
“I can be an effective leader for this city at a time it needs someone with my background and that’s why I’m running. It’s really to start by changing the culture, which if we don’t change the culture, we can’t address our problems. We can’t address homelessness, housing, meeting our climate action plan goals, and creating good jobs."
“I want San Diego to control what happens in our neighborhoods, not corporate special interests.”
“I don’t think scooters are really a first mile and last mile solution. I think they are mostly an entertainment device.”
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my business experience, is you have to be adaptable as you get new information, and as conditions around you change.”
“In San Diego we have about, we have the highest utility rates in the state, so I want to give community choice energy an opportunity to prove that it can deliver lower rates and meet our clean energy goals.”
“I think the diversity of my life experiences makes me a very unique, well-qualified candidate for mayor.”
