From Camp Dumanis:
San Diego County Sheriff and former FBI Special Agent-in-Charge Bill Gore today endorsed District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis for Mayor of San Diego.
“Bonnie is the only candidate with the executive management skills and leadership to keep San Diego moving in the right direction,” said Gore. “As Sheriff, I’ve worked with her on some of the toughest criminal cases we’ve handled in the past eight years. Bonnie isn’t afraid to make the tough choices and hold people accountable. At the same time, she’s shown great compassion and extraordinary dedication to victims’ rights.”
Gore was appointed as the 29th Sheriff of San Diego County in 2009 and elected a year later in June 2010. He oversees one of the largest Sheriff’s Departments in the nation with 4,000 employees, an annual budget of over $600 million, and a service area of more than 4,200 square miles extending to a 60-mile international border. Previously, Gore was the Special Agent-in-Charge of the FBI’s San Diego Field Office and Chief of the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation.
“I’m honored to receive Sheriff Gore’s support,” said Dumanis. “He’s been a public safety partner for nearly a decade, working with the District Attorney’s Office and other law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level to keep San Diegans safe.”
“Bonnie is one of the main reasons law enforcement coordinates and cooperates so well in San Diego. She has the ability to bring people to the table, build consensus and get things done,” said Sheriff Gore. “I watched firsthand as Bonnie united a divided District Attorney’s Office and then brought important reforms to the organization.”
Bonnie Dumanis has also been endorsed by San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, San Diego County Supervisor Ron Roberts, San Diego City Councilman Kevin Faulconer, former U.S. Congresswoman Lynn Schenk, San Diego Port Commissioner Laurie Black, Solana Beach City Councilman Dave Roberts, and Lemon Grove Mayor Mary Sessoms.
