SAN DIEGO (June 13, 2017) – Councilmember Alvarez has issued the following statement regarding his vote today on the Council’s consideration of the Mayoral veto of Council approved budget items:
“With his vindictive veto, the Mayor corrupted the City’s civil budget process with the petty partisanship usually seen in Washington, DC -- not San Diego. Unfortunately, a minority of the City Council were too afraid to stand up to the Mayor. This demonstrates the clear need for a City Charter Amendment that protects the balance between a strong Council-strong Mayor form of government.”
