GOP Unity Team completed …. Mayor Sanders endorses Scott Sherman in pivotal 7th San Diego Council Dist.
Mayor Jerry Sanders backed Scott Sherman this week, increasing GOP chances of recapturing the long-Republican 7th district which elected Larry Stirling, Judy McCarty, Jim Ellis and Allen Hitch starting in 1961! [Marti Emerald decamped for other pastures!] Successful business owner (5th Avenue Insurance) Scott Sherman grew up in District 7, lives near his childhood home, and played football for the mighty Patriots of Patrick Henry High. And yes, sports fans, where you went to High School still matters in San Diego!
……G.O.P. TEAM IS NOW SET FOR ‘COUNCIL BOWL’ 2012
Mayor Sanders’ endorsement completes the GOP unity Dream Team of Scott Sherman (7th), Mark Kersey (5th dist.) and Ray Ellis (1st district) which may regain a 5-seat San Diego City Council majority (when added to Lorie Zapf and Kevin Faulconer). That Republican coalition did not just happen … leaders like Tony Krvaric, TJ Zane, and Jerry Sanders pieced it together over time with patience and persistence. They made it look easy, but it isn’t. Well done to all!
…..JERRY SANDERS TALKS ABOUT SCOTT SHERMAN
“Scott Sherman is committed to restoring neighborhood services, which have suffered due to the economic downturn and resulting budget deficit,” said Mayor Sanders. “More importantly, Scott understands that restoring neighborhood services and our infrastructure backlog takes supporting and aggressively implementing real fiscal reforms like Comprehensive Pension Reform and managed competition. Scott’s commitment to real reform is why he is my choice for the 7th district councilmember.”
….WHERE IS DISTRICT 7? … AND HOW DOES IT VOTE ?
As redrawn, District 7 includes the fine neighborhoods of Allied Gardens, Del Cerro, San Carlos, Navajo, Grantville, Tierrasanta, Mission Village, Serra Mesa, Mission Valley and Linda Vista.
In Your correspondent’s opinion, past and consistent voting history makes the new 7th Council district one with a clear Republican lean. It’s not a slam-dunk, but Scott Sherman has history on his side.
Scott Sherman and his wife, Norma live in the Allied Gardens area near the house where he grew up. He is the President and Principal of 5th Avenue Insurance, an insurance services company located in Mission Valley.
