Lightner files papers to seek re-election

Sherri Lightner

Councilmember Sherri Lightner announced Friday she has filed her statement of intent to seek re-election to the San Diego City Council.

In a press release, she said she “has worked to balance the need for fiscal responsibility with the preservation of public safety and core neighborhood services.”

“I’m proud of what I have accomplished since taking office two and a half years ago,” Lightner said. “I have worked to make tough, sensible cuts while always keeping the best interests of our neighborhoods in mind.”

She added that she has kept a “campaign promise to give a real voice to the neighborhoods. Constituents in District 1 know they can contact my office and get help with anything from potholes to street sweeping to code compliance.”
Going forward, her release said she plans to focus on issues that benefit both District 1 and the city as a whole, including public safety, neighborhood services, pension reform, smart growth and economic development.

She appears to be the first candidate to enter the race.

    Sherri has my vote !!! She is pro-Fishing and understands how vital the fishing community (both commercial and recreational) is to San Diego; plus she doesn't lead any extremist envrionmental groups like Brian Pease and she doesn't taser people with stun guns.
