City settles another Filner claim, honors Peggy Shannon

Peggy Shannon, the great-grandmother who submitted a sexual harassment claim arising out of former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's conduct, is being given a day in her honor by San Diego City Council.

The city will designate Monday, Feb. 24 as "Peggy Shannon Day" and will communicate a full apology to her.

"All of the parties agreed with Ms. Shannon that this was the way to resolve her claim," City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said. "Receiving an apology is important to Peggy Shannon and honoring her allows us to express our respect for her and her courage."
