Members of the County Democratic Central Committee this week unanimously endorsed Congressman Bob Filner for Mayor of San Diego, formalizing the Party's support in what is sure be one of the city's most important and exciting campaigns in years.
During a candidate forum, Filner highlighted his vision of San Diego as a 21st-century leader in renewable energy, commerce, and good jobs.
The Party also endorsed three incumbent Democrats on the San Diego City Council who are running for reelection: Sherri Lightner in District 1, Todd Gloria in District 3, and Marti Emerald in the new District 9.
Endorsements in other municipal, county, and school board races on the June 2012 ballot will take place over the next several months. The California Democratic Party will weigh in on candidates for Congress and the State Legislature at its next convention, which will take place February 10-12 in San Diego.
