(SAN DIEGO) – San Diego County District Attorney and Mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis issued the following statement in response to today’s decision by the California Supreme Court concerning redevelopment programs:

“San Diego is America’s Finest City today in no small part due to the success of our local redevelopment efforts. Sacramento politicians should have left well enough alone, and not interfered with a program that has successfully put local tax revenue to work locally, created jobs, and transformed our city for the better.”

“When the legislature abolished redevelopment agencies earlier this year it did not discriminate between those programs that have worked well – like San Diego’s — and those that haven’t. Instead, the legislature’s actions have led to today’s Supreme Court decision that leaves us with the worst possible outcome for San Diego.”

“Today’s decision is a major setback to our job creation efforts locally and I call upon the legislature to get back to work in restoring redevelopment as a critical tool to building and rebuilding our cities.”
