From San Diego County Voters for Progress & Reform:
“I have fought to … resurface more than 25 miles of roads and fill thousands of potholes in District One,” Sherri Lightner tells voters on her campaign website.
That’s interesting because Rachel Laing, the former press aide to Mayor Jerry Sanders and a Lightner supporter, argues that’s not true.
The “mayor (staff) sets road-paving schedule,” Laing tweeted.
So which is it? Does the council have any say over repaving decisions? If not, why does Sherri Lightner take credit for the repaving work, which includes the street she lives on?
Laing’s husband, Greg Block, didn’t like the 30-second ad that mentions Lightner and the credit she takes for road work.
“You are despite and deceitful. Really sad state of affairs. Shame on you!” Block tweeted in response to a tweet from the Lincoln Club. Block added: “If my finger was working properly that would have said desperate. You are desperate and shady.”
