Marti Emerald introduced the resolution which states that the right of free speech “applies to people, not corporations.” At the council meeting to support the proposition were several Club members including Ruth Rollins, Nancy Witt, Mike Johnson, Vera Moldt, Carol Heasley and Susan Peinado.

Councilwoman Emerald’s proposal is backed by the League of Women Voters, the San Diego chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, California Common Cause, Democratic legislators and San Diego Mayor-elect Bob Filner.
