The idea of creating an independent police oversight body with its own legal counsel, subpoena power, and the ability to hire independent investigators makes sense. That’s why I have supported this measure since Women Occupy - San Diego introduced me to it in 2018.
And, I am excited to announce that on Tuesday, June 23, the San Diego City Council passed the “Commission on Police Practices” measure unanimously. The vote was a step in the right direction to answer the complex issues we face regarding disparate treatment by law enforcement based on race. In addition, I am honored that Andrea St. Julian, the author of this measure, has endorsed me for Mayor.
On the campaign trail, June 30th marks a very important fundraising deadline. I am the only candidate who is a true Problem-Solver, who is not a career politician, and who's not beholden to the special interests in this town.
Are you with me?
