According to the Labor Department, California's unemployment rate is the second highest in the country, behind Nevada. The August jobs report shows the state with a 12.1 percent unemployment rate.

Moments after the data was released, District attorney and mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis commented on effects that high unemployment have in San Diego.

“Rising unemployment during this ‘recovery’ means too many San Diegans are suffering,” stated Dumanis.

Similar to other mayoral candidates, Dumanis has her sights on reforming business practices in the city as a way to spark the local economy.

“Holding the line on taxes, reforming and simplifying permitting, and improving our infrastructure to lure new employers must be our top priorities to tackle this jobs crisis.

“As mayor I will work to make San Diego the easiest place in California to start a business, expand a business, and invest, and this morning's jobs report should be a wake-up call for anyone who is unsure government needs to change direction. “

I thought political advertisements were supposed to include the candidate's approval. Or, if this was a journalist's piece, the opinions of the other candidates.

Uh, yeah, I agree with you. What she said was easy to say. Could/would she ever walk the talk? Ha, ha, ha! Not in this life. She's just the latest in the string of good old boys put forth by the establishment to occupy that chair whilst they rip off the city.
