I would like to take the opportunity to thank both voiceofsandiego.org and its readers for the chance to express the many reasons why I think Sherri Lightner is the BEST candidate for City Council’s District 1.  Hopefully, I was able to clearly convey my reasons for supporting her and am glad that — but for a few exceptions — both bloggers and commentators were able to keep the dialogue open, honest and civil.

It was heartwarming to read that I am not alone in my support of Sherri. There are many other voters in District 1 who want their city council member to represent neighborhoods, to protect their quality of life and to even the playing field, ensuring that everyone gets an equal break and has to abide by the same rules. Sherri has a proven track record of doing this, and she is poised and ready to be an effective city council member for District 1.

I encourage all of you to “follow the money” and pay particular attention to how much the candidates contribute to their own campaigns and where the contributions from outside the district are coming from.

In a little over a month, you will be asked to cast your vote for someone who will be your voice in City Hall. Sherri has the widest base of support of people inside District 1.  

Sherri has been out walking in all the neighborhoods, meeting people, listening to concerns and appearing at numerous public events. I hope that you have a chance to meet her in your neighborhood.

Keep checking Sherri’s website for more information on neighborhood issues and how to contact her yourself. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Sherri Lightner.
