Union Tribune Endorses George Plescia for State Senate

By U-T San Diego Editorial Board

The local state Senate race pitting Assemblyman Marty Block, D-San Diego, and former Assemblyman George Plescia, R-La Jolla, hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. Redistricting set up a 39th Senate District that spans from Solana Beach to Point Loma and inland to Mira Mesa and Lemon Grove, one that looks like it could go to either candidate. In 2012, this race matters more than any local legislative election in a long time.

Marty Block’s early release for violent offenders endangers San Diegans

Wednesday, October 3, 2012
posted by George Plescia

San Diego, CA – George Plescia, candidate for the 39th Senate District, today denounced his opponent Assemblyman Marty Block for his vote for AB 109, the Democrat Early Release Program.  Under this dangerous program, 52,000 offenders will no longer be serving time in state prison by 2013-14. They are instead being released into our local communities.

“Citizens and law enforcement are at the mercy of this defective program.  It is only a matter of time before one of these violent early release offenders commits another violent crime,” Plescia said.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the New Majority,” said Plescia. “I’m appreciative that they support my economic plans to jump start our economy.  We must focus on new job creation and protect and retain the jobs we have from moving to other states or countries.  Pension reform is also a crucial component to right the state budget.”

California Gamesmanship

Thursday, July 12, 2012
posted by George Plescia

Once again, we have seen the Legislature engage in what can only be called its particularly unique form of California gamesmanship – a word defined as “the use of methods that are dubious or seemingly improper but not strictly illegal.”

Last week the Senate narrowly passed, and the Governor is expected to approve, the bonds that will underwrite California’s High Speed Rail.  This on the heels of a May’s warning by Standard and Poor that two developments – a $17 billion deficit and a judge’s ruling that the state controller does not have the authority to withhold lawmakers’ pay for failing to pass a balanced budget on time – “could weaken the state’s prospects for further improvement in its fiscal structure.” Add to this the fiscal time-bomb of unresolved pension reform and a burgeoning California “wall of debt.”

Plescia Supports Governor Brown’s Pension Reform Plan

(San Diego, CA) – George Plescia today announced his support of Governor Brown’s state employee pension reform plan. Governor Brown released a twelve point plan outlining his proposal earlier this year. Mr. Plescia has called on Assemblyman Marty Block to join Governor Brown in pushing the reform through the Legislature. Mr. Plescia is running to represent San Diegans the California State Senate.

“I support Governor Brown’s common sense pension reform plan,” said Plescia. “I don’t always agree with Governor Brown, but I agree with him that the legislative Democrats’ plan does not do the job for Californians. It’s unfortunate San Diego voters won’t be able to vote on state pension reform this year. I urge Assemblyman Block to join the Governor’s effort to get pension reform passed this year.”
