(Editor’s note: SDGLN is not reporting on the 2012 San Diego mayoral race because SDGLN Publisher Johnathan Hale has a personal relationship with City Councilmember Carl DeMaio, who is running for mayor. SDGLN will also not be making an endorsement in the race.
For the first time in San Diego history, the mayoral race has two prominent LGBT candidates: DeMaio and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. Although SDGLN will not be reporting on the mayoral race, we will, as a service to the LGBT community, publish selected press releases by DeMaio and Dumanis to inform our readers about their campaigns. These press releases will be clearly labeled as such so that readers understand they are not written by SDGLN staff members.
In addition, all candidates for any political race are allowed to submit two pieces per month for our Commentary page. SDGLN Editor in Chief Ken Williams can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, @KenSanDiego on Twitter or at (877) 727-5446, x713.)
THIS IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE CARL DEMAIO CAMPAIGN
Join the "Democrats for DeMaio" and "LGBT Coalition for DeMaio" at Eden in Hillcrest for a special happy hour to support Carl DeMaio for San Diego Mayor.
PLUS: Special Appearance and Performance By Comedian Shawn Pelofsky
Carl DeMaio fights for the people against the special interests at City Hall. His agenda of fixing city finances and restoring neighborhood services unites San Diegans from all political parties.
Come hear Carl’s platform for getting city government back on the right track, which includes a 90-page step-by-step plan for balancing the budget, reforming the pension system, fixing crumbling infrastructure, and restoring a culture of service to every level of city government.
The Mayor's race is for a non-partisan office. Join Carl and many other democrats and independents who support his vision for a better San Diego.
6:30 to 8pm
1202 University Ave., San Diego CA 92103
As Carl needs funds to get his inclusive message of change and reform out to all San Diegans, we will be asking for donations at the door. Any amount is welcome!
