The mayor’s campaign will continue to uphold the message of “One San Diego.” The goal of this is to create a unified city with an inclusive city government, said Barraza. His aim is to bring San Diego together and restore a spirit of integrity to city hall.

In the past two years, Barraza says Faulconer has the following major accomplishments:

  • Directed 50 percent of newly available funding toward neighborhood improvements
  • Doubled the miles of streets repaired on an annual basis
  • Improved emergency response times to give faster support in less privileged communities
  • Hired the first female police chief in San Diego history
  • Increased the hours that libraries and recreation centers are open to the highest level in the past decade
  • Created a year-round homeless shelter to provide a safe place for families and veterans
  • Supported the growth and expansion of innovative companies and businesses
  • Implemented a customer-service attitude in the city government’s public relations

Several members of City Council appeared at his re-election campaign launch, including Lorie Zapf, Mark Kersey and Scott Sherman.
