With public opinion tilting against public employee unions, the California Republican Party says D7 council candidate Mat Kostrinsky (D) does not want voters to know of his career interlude with the influential local SEIU chapter. And a check of the Biography Page at Kostrinsky’s campaign website does not mention the SEIU. SEIU press releases or agendas from Local 221 identify Kostrinsky as an SEIU official here in 2010 and again here in 2007 .
District 7’s boundaries were redrawn by a
Kangaroo Court Redistricting Commission in 2011. D7 incumbent Marti Emerald then fled relocated to District 9. The Republican Party of San Diego and the CRP endorse homegrown businessman & Patrick Henry High School grad (and football player) Scott Sherman in the contest with Kostrinsky for D7. District 7’s history includes Republican council members like Judy McCarty and Larry Stirling, both of whom endorse Scott Sherman.
And Yes, sports fans, where you went to high school and played football (for the Patriots in this case) still matters in places like Allied Gardens, Del Cerro, San Carlos, Grantville, Tierrasanta, Mission Village, Serra Mesa, Lake Murray and the rest of beautiful Council District 7.
DISCLOSURE: Scott Sherman for City Council is a client.
