Of all the mayoral candidates, Bob Filner is best connected to the interests of the rank and file.

Speaking with conviction, Filner supports a collaborative approach in regard to City Hall and our local school district. His common sense ideas including the use of city facilities for after-school use reminds me of back in the late sixties when the city of San Diego issued kids a pass for golf at Torrey Pines. The cost was fifty cents and that was for eighteen holes, folks. Also, Filner’s proposal for kids to utilize public transportation at no cost in order to go to school is fully viable and makes perfect sense. Filner will address education and the under-class as no candidate for mayor would because he has the conscience and courage of a lion.

When our present-day society and dysfunctional culture are tearing the fabric of public education to shreds, we need a reasoned and compassionate mayor to lead our city and work constructively with the education sector. Filner understands all of our societal woes and will make this city proud.
