Chamber endorses four for June primary

Jerry Sanders and the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce officially announced their endorsements for the June ballot, though none comes as a huge surprise.

The chamber is endorsing Councilmember Lorie Zapf in her bid to replace Mayor Kevin Faulconer in the District 2 seat; Chris Cate, vice president of the San Diego County Taxpayer’s Association for Zapf’s current District 6 spot; Supervisor Ron Roberts in his last, and unopposed, bid to maintain his spot on the County Board of Supervisors for District 4; and Supervisor Bill Horn to keep his District 5 Board of Supervisors’ seat.

“Lorie and I worked closely together when she served on the City Council,” Sanders, the chamber’s chairman, said Tuesday alongside Zapf and Cate. “She’s made critical votes that have allowed this city to move forward on things like managed competition -- a voter-mandated reform which had been stopped by previous councils. Thanks to Lorie, we were able to save millions of dollars of taxpayer money by streamlining a number of city services including the print shop and fleet services.”

Sanders also pointed out Zapf’s continued support of the Convention Center expansion, which the Chamber hasn’t been shy about pushing.

“Chris represents a new generation of leadership in San Diego,” Sanders said. “He’s a thoughtful, passionate individual, that’s been a leader on voter-approved reforms such as pension reform and managed competition. Chris is running for the City Council to ensure these reforms are fully implemented and those savings are reinvested back into our neighborhoods.”

The primary election is scheduled for June 3, with the general election on Nov. 4. New terms are scheduled to begin Dec. 8.
