There's San Diegans for Reform in Opposition to Bob Filner - Mayor 2012, and there's San Diegans in Support of Bob Filner for Mayor - 2012. There's Too Extreme for San Diego - a committee to oppose Carl DeMaio for Mayor 2012, and then there's Gay Friends Supporting Carl DeMaio for Mayor 2012.

It seems virtually every political insider or mega-millionaire with a special interest at city hall wants to grab a piece of the local political action by spending boatloads of money on TV spots and direct mail pieces, either for or against GOP city councilman Carl DeMaio or Democratic congressman Bob Filner, facing off against each other for mayor.

Now comes the Environmental and Justice Campaign Fund Working to Elect Bob Filner for Mayor 2012, the latest so-called independent expenditure campaign fund to jump into San Diego's topsy-turvy race to run the city.

According to a Friday disclosure filing, posted online by the city clerk's office, the committee qualified to do business October 1. Its principal officer is listed as Diane Takvorian, well known in San Diego political circles as executive director of the Environmental Health Coalition and a close Filner friend and ally.

Also weighing in for the Democrat is San Diegans for Retirement Security - Oppose DeMaio for Mayor 2012, Sponsored by American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees AFL-CIO and Affiliated Unions.

The committee's October 12 statement posted online by city clerk, shows that as of September 30, the fund had raised $425,846 and had $100,876 in the bank.

Bob Filner is our only choice for Mayor of San Diego in 2012. When you live in the Largest Military Town in America, you need experienced leadership. Many in the Military Community do not think Carl DeMaio could do a good enough job running a City like ours San Diego, CA. This City has had ineffective leadership for so many years leaving our City in shambles. Bob Filner has the knowledge and the proven ability to restore San Diego to its former glory. DeMaio has no way to handle this much responsibility at this point in his career. DeMaio says he will stand up to the downtown interest and this is simply not true. DeMaio talks about closing some of our Military Bases which would leave our Nation more vulnerable in the future. Bob Filner will take care of Americas Veteran’s and ensure our Nations Security for many years to come. Bob Filner is our only choice for Mayor of San Diego, 2012.
