When we talk about James Hartline, we envision two pillars of this great city that would be strengthened under James Hartline’s leadership, that being our children and our seniors.
First, I would like to address the pillar of our society that represents our future and next generation of leaders, our children.
If we do not teach our children individual responsibility; respect for authority, self, others and property, we will in the end have failed in our duty to our children and to this country. It is our responsibility as parents and citizens to educate our children, provide opportunities for their success, and above all, protect them.
In 2005, James discovered that a number of registered sex offenders were working inside the San Diego Gay Pride organization. Upon further investigation, James found that a registered pedophile entertained young children at one of their sponsored events, under the guise of a seemingly innocent Garden venue, at the Gay Pride festival.
This is important because children are being targeted across the nation and in this city, while people on the Council are turning a blind eye and making proclamations to the very perpetrators of these offenses. Do they care about pornography visible for young eyes? Do they care about porn shops and bathhouses in close proximity to children? When adults ignore potential risks to our youth, for their own agendas, self gain and self indulgences, we have lost our way.
If it had not been for the vigilance of James Hartline, who knows how many children could have been preyed upon.
When will the people of San Diego recognize the common sense leader and watchful servant that is James Hartline?
