I have known Amy for about 12 years — dating back to when we served on a domestic violence committee together. She is one of the smartest, most ethical people I know. I was thrilled when she decided to run for city attorney so that I would have a good candidate to vote for! I believe Amy is not only electable, but would do an excellent job as San Diego’s city attorney. Amy has a wealth of experience and spent time as a deputy in the City Attorney’s office. She is a leader. Her skill set is what is needed to bring the City Attorney’s office back to the people.

I have heard it said that Amy “can’t win” and so should drop out of the race. I find that line of thought interesting. I also am a supporter of Hillary Clinton for president, and there have been calls for her to drop out of the presidential race. I am grateful that Hillary has stayed in the race and I know that Amy has no intention to drop out of the city attorney’s race. Until every person has had an opportunity to cast their vote, no one should be asked to leave a race in which they — and their supporters — have contributed so much.

Amy would be an independent city attorney. She has a diverse background having worked at the City Attorney’s office, litigated class action lawsuits and now runs her own law office involving family law, consumer law and elder-abuse law. She is energetic, ethical and hard working. Unlike the other candidates for this office, she has no votes to cover up, no special interest money to pay back and no political agenda.

I am proud to support Amy Lepine for the office of City Attorney and I ask that you cast your vote for her, too.
