A mayoral race without “values” distractions

Timothy Kincaid

January 30th, 2012

The term of San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, an advocate for our community, is coming to an end and San Diegans will be selecting a new mayor. Their choices are Democrat Bob Filner or Republicans Nathan Fletcher, Carl DeMaio, or Bonnie Dumanis.

Filner, a congressman, has taken action to support our community in a possible hate crime and in challenging our nation’s relationship with Uganda.

Fletcher, an assemblyman and former marine, is best known to our community for his articulate and compelling speech calling for the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Fletcher is endorsed by Log Cabin Republicans.

Carl DeMaio, city counselor, is in a relationship with Jonathan Hale, the publisher of the San Diego Gay & Lesbian News.

Bonnie Dumanis, attorney general, married her wife, Denese Neleson, in 2008 during the window of marriage opportunity.

All candidates are in agreement on issues of importance to our community, including marriage equality. Which means that in San Diego, candidates can compete on the positions and ideas that will best benefit the city without distractions over what portion of the populace should not receive the same rights as others.

Congratulations, San Diego.

I read the title and was worried; I ended up being surprised.

San Diego is not exactly an ultra-left city. We are slowly winning the battle, folks.

I’m not voting for any Republican mayoral candidate.
None of them are true conservatives.
