Susan Guinn is running for County Assessor/Recorder/Clerk
As a consumer advocate attorney for over twenty years, Susan Guinn has spent her career fighting to make sure people get a fair deal. Passionate about consumer rights, with a proven track record of results, she has protected taxpayers from fraudulent taxes and fees. She fought for families and businesses to collect from insurance companies after catastrophic losses, working tirelessly to win a $3.3 billion dollar settlement for county government.
The backlog in the assessor’s office is costing hardworking San Diego County families and businesses money. She will modernize old systems and outdated practices, which cause inefficiencies costing taxpayers, ensuring we aren’t stuck paying more than our fair share.
Susan Guinn is not a career politician. She is a successful business woman and community volunteer. She has been a Board Member of the Consumer Attorneys of California; Equality California; the St. Paul’s Foundation; and, is a Co-Founder along with her son Max of KidsEcoClub. She is also Chair of the San Diego Unified School District’s Environmental Sustainability Committee.
San Diego City Councilperson, and Pt. Loma Democratic Club member, Ed Harris returns to give us his impressions of his first weeks sitting in the seat of power, on a podium high above us everyday citizens.
Club member Ed Harris was appointed by the other City Council members to be our District 2 representative. Between now and the end of the year Ed may be called on to vote on a minimum wage increase, infrastructure bonds, and housing for the homeless as well as traffic control, safe water, libraries, parks, and job growth.
What does “a normal guy, a normal Joe,” as Harris describes himself, feels like removed from a beach existence guarding human lives, to the super heated cauldron of San Diego’s local politics? What has excited him and what are his first impressions of his new position still making decisions that will affect human lives?
It’s a great opportunity to share our concerns and ask questions: what will he be doing to make a smooth transition for Sarah? what goals does he have for his time in office? how can we help him achieve those goals? will he protect the coastal 30’ height limit?
What questions would you like to ask our newest Councilperson? Come along to give Ed input, to make sure he understands our concerns for our communities.
