Stretches

You know the political season is in high gear when candidates file their ballot statements, describing their personal achievements, with plenty of hyperbole thrown in for good measure. San Diego city councilman Brian Maienschein touts a “record of accomplishments” worthy of Superman, including completion of State Route 56 and preserving “over 11,000 acres of open space from development.” He also says he established Teen Court. “For this I received the District Attorney’s Crime Victims Award.” Not to be outdone in the business of working civic miracles is Maienschein’s council colleague Scott Peters, who is also seeking the city attorney’s job. Peters says he’s been busy “restoring fiscal discipline, creating high-wage jobs, protecting our neighborhoods and safeguarding our quality of life.” City attorney candidate Jan Goldsmith, who recently moved into the city of San Diego from Coronado, says he was the “recipient of Brightest Star for Children award from The California Children’s Lobby” and notes he is a “Former Mayor of Poway, a well run city with no pension deficit.” Dark horse Amy Lepine, who is listed as a “Consumer Advocate, Civil Litigator,” takes a touchy-feely approach to the job. “I will encourage creative thinking and problem-solving. I will facilitate the open dialogue among all parties, the People and City Hall.” Incumbent Mike Aguirre, in whose direction the rest of the field is aiming its heavy artillery, says he has stopped unnamed people he calls “They” from doing a variety of unsavory deeds. A couple of examples: “They want YOU to Pay the $1.2 Billion Pension Deficit. MIKE SAID NO!” and “They Allowed the Dangerous Sunroad Building to Threaten the Safety of OUR Neighborhoods. MIKE GOT IT STOPPED!”

Wow, I didn't know that a plane hitting the Sunroad building would continue flying to the nearest residential neighborhood.... what's that, a mile as the crow (or stricken aircraft) flies?

Any info from DeMaio about how he's gotten rich telling governments how to "save" money?
