Guest Commentary

As statewide elected officials (and past city councilmembers) who represent Barrio Logan and our working waterfront, we are concerned about what happens in San Diego Bay, one of our region’s most precious assets. Not only does the bay provide a breeding ground that supports marine life, which contributes to our food chain, but it also promotes tourism and serves as the linchpin for an economically critical industry that contains some of the most prevalent maritime businesses in the nation. These companies, in turn, have created a thriving economic hub that generates thousands of jobs and millions of tax dollars each year in the San Diego region.
