Former San Diego County Bar Association president Monty McIntyre has announced his candidacy for the San Diego City Council’s 7th District, which is now represented by termed-out Councilman Scott Sherman.
“District 7 residents deserve a representative who knows the law and will help our City Council make wise decisions when solving the complex problems facing our district and our city,” said McIntyre.
“Using my 39 years of experience as a leader, advocate, problem-solver and consensus-builder, I’m ready to help our City Council wisely and responsibly fix our infrastructure, provide good quality municipal services, address homelessness, help reduce the cost of housing and protect our environment, while balancing the city budget,” he said.
McIntyre is a graduate of Coronado High School, UC San Diego and the University of San Diego law school. He began practicing law in 1980 and became a full-time mediator in 2013. He and his wife, Mary Beth, have lived in Tierrasanta since 2006.
Former teacher and gun control proponent Wendy Wheatcroft has announced her candidacy for the seat, and San Diego Unified School District Trustee Kevin Beiser has filed papers to run, though he has not made an announcement amid sexual harassment allegations.
The primary will be held March 3, 2020, followed by the general election on November 3, 2020.
