Flores is chief of staff to Emerald, but she is not seeking re-election and has endorsed him as her successor.
Davis, who Flores once worked for as a community representative, praised his “incredible commitment to improving his community with integrity and hard work,” adding that “as a resident of the 9th District I’m proud to endorse him.”
Brian Marvel, president of the police officer’s association, warned that “San Diego has some serious public safety challenges ahead” and “Ricardo Flores is the best person to lead the communities of District 9 through this continued rebuilding process.”
The 9th district includes neighborhoods east of Interstate 805 and south on Interstate 8, including City Heights, Kensington and the San Diego State University area.
