What we don’t need is more dirty politicians – but that’s exactly what we would get with Carl DeMaio.
When DeMaio showed up at City Hall in 2002, nobody knew what was behind his buzzword-driven proposals for “cleaning up City Hall.” It turns out that it’s DeMaio’s own record that needs cleaning up. The truth is, Carl DeMaio is just one more dirty politician. And his record proves it:
DeMaio claims to be a fiscal watchdog. In fact, he can't even balance his own books and has regularly violated tax laws.
DeMaio says he’s running to represent fellow San Diegans. In fact, he recently said in a sworn affidavit that he is a resident of Arlington, Virginia.
DeMaio has criticized City Hall corruption and special interests. In fact, he is a lobbyist and consultant who represents corporations and special interests.
See for yourself. Get the facts on DeMaio's dirty record and help clean it up. Go to DirtyDeMaio.com.
This message was paid for by the thousands of firefighters, nurses, teachers and other workers of the San Diego Labor Council.
