San Diego City Councilman Scott Sherman confirmed Thursday that he is running for mayor, challenging two candidates who have been campaigning since January.
“The other candidates have been campaigning for over a year, but the future of San Diego is too important,” said Sherman. “When the candidates running to fix the problems we face are the same people who created the problems, something needs to change. That’s why I’m running.”
The race is officially nonpartisan, but Sherman is a Republican and both Gloria and Bry are Democrats.
“I welcome Scott Sherman’s entry into the race for mayor,” said Bry. “His candidacy further reinforces the theme of my campaign — that San Diego elected officials, from Todd Gloria to Scott Sherman — have presided over a series of poor decisions.”
“My platform is the same no matter who gets in this race,” said Gloria. “We need to build affordable housing for working families, make real progress toward ending chronic homelessness, and combat climate change. I look forward to talking about these issues with Councilmember Sherman on the campaign trail.”
The primary elections is scheduled for March 3.
