SAN DIEGO, CA (March 8, 2016) – Councilmember Alvarez has issued the following statement in response to the City Council’s approval today of the Rebuild San Diego proposed ballot measure to amend the City Charter:
“The Rebuild San Diego measure will NOT rebuild San Diego. It produces just 11% of the $1.7 billion we need to fix our streets, sidewalks and buildings in just the next 5 years. Additionally, the proposal has a giant loophole that allows City politicians to squander this money by giving bonuses to employees far removed from actual construction.”
