The San Diego City Council unanimously voted Monday to re-elect City Councilwoman Georgette Gómez to a second term as council president.
“I am grateful to my colleagues on the City Council for entrusting me to lead as the council president for a second year,” said Gomez after the vote. “My colleagues and I have worked together toward creating a government that is equitable, inclusive, transparent, and accountable, and we will continue to do so.”
Gómez represents the 9th District, which includes the communities of Alvarado Estates, City Heights, College, College View Estates, El Cerrito, Kensington, Mountain View, Mt. Hope, Rolando, Southcrest and Talmadge.
She is serving her first term on the council, and is a candidate for Congress in the 53rd District in 2020 as a Democrat.
Councilman Scott Sherman, one of the council’s two Republican members, praised Gómez for leading with “respect, honesty and truthfulness.”
Councilwoman Barbara Bry, a Democrat who is serving her second term, said Gómez had presided over “an excellent year for the council” and said she looked forward to continued leadership.
