Mel Katz and Phil Blair, executive officers of the San Diego office of Manpower, said in a letter published by the U-T that they “are longtime advocates for a prosperous region and usually agree with U-T San Diego editorials. However, we wholeheartedly disagree with ‘Carl DeMaio for Congress.'”
“As former chairmen of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, we’ve worked with and known Rep. Scott Peters for over a decade. He’s an articulate, smart, effective advocate for jobs and quality of life, and we’re fortunate to have him representing us in Congress. He’s a moderate who understands all points of view and matches the district better than any candidate in the race.”
The U-T said in it’s editorial that “Peters’ entire political career has reflected his fundamental timidity. Sixteen months ago, he went to Washington, and he disappeared.
“When DeMaio joins the House next January, we are absolutely certain that won’t happen to him. DeMaio for Congress.”
The 52nd District includes Coronado, La Jolla, much of the City of San Diego, and Poway.
