Our June 3 election endorsements
|By CityBeat Staff|
A guide to a better world, in handy, clip-out form
For those traditionalists who like to vote in-person on Election Day, below is our clip-out guide that you can take to the polls. Since we published our detailed endorsements on May 7, some new information has come to light:
First, Voice of San Diego ran a story about Oceanside Mayor Jim Wood, whom we endorsed for the District 5 seat on the county Board of Supervisors. Turns out he's super-creepy when it comes to interacting with women. So, we're pulling our endorsement. It's really too bad, because he's running against incumbent Supervisor Bill Horn, who's just the worst kind of awful.
Next, former CityBeat investigative reporter Dave Maass revealed on Facebook that Donna Woodrum, one of the candidates running for San Diego Community College District's governing board, is a leader of an organization that "believes that homosexuality can be cured with treatment, climate change is a hoax, and that Muslims are the greatest threat to America." In our May 7 issue, we didn't make endorsements for the college district board, but we do here.
Please vote on June 3. And please convince your friends to vote—we need people to turn out, particularly to vote yes on Propositions B and C.
