In mailboxes right now, San Diego mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio is telling you that he’s the one “with a real plan to do more” on significant city issues.
For his education credentials, he cites a story from a very trustworthy and august news operation to try to prove the same point. The ad quotes from the story: “DeMaio connects his school reform ideas to his other plans. His financial plans will guide how the district can make changes.”
Here’s the problem. Those lines came from the same story that talks about how he really doesn’t have an education plan.
And the story even applauded him for not trying to pander on it.
I guess we’ll have to retract that now.
