Wednesday, April 30, 2008 | Who is Marshall Merrifield? The voters of District 1 are being asked to vote for him, and his resume sounds great. I would think the voters and contributors would want to know his stance on city issues. His website tells of his business experience (very impressive), it tells of his community service (very nice). His website and his commercials tell us nothing about how he is going to be as a councilman. What are his feelings on the employee pension plan, the DROP program, pay raises, development, transportation, cross on Mt. Soledad, potholes, transportation, Charger stadium, sanctuary city, gay marriage? He is asking for contributions—how about a reason.
