Ethical and Effective Leadership for San Diego District 6
Votes Continue to Be Counted
With 219,000 ballots left to be counted throughout San Diego County, Tommy is regrettably down in the District 6 vote count, and we'll need a sizable windfall to make up the difference. But with turnout over 53 percent and climbing, our campaign can wait before coming to a final summation. We're not there yet. We will stick with our timeline and hold off until we have the numbers and data to come to a firm conclusion, and then move forward.
Dishonorable Post-Election Comment by Chris Cate's Chief of Staff
We're proud to have run a drama-free, transparent campaign for District 6. Even after being outspent 8 to 1, we put a competitive canvassing operation in the field, increased voter turnout, addressed issues, took questions, and connected with thousands of excited neighbors ready for change. So it was disappointing that Mr. Cate's chief of staff, days after the election, was the author of a unprofessional and unprovoked remark that speaks volumes about the office's well-known sense of entitlement.
Repurpose Your Tommy Hough Yard Sign
If you still have your Tommy Hough for City Council yard sign, consider donating it so it can be re-used and re-purporsed. Contact our supporter Julie in Clairemont by way of a phone call or text at (757) 788-9677 to either drop your sign off, or have it picked up. If you're going to dispose of it, please be sure to recycle. Both the cardboard sign and metal wiring can be placed in your blue bin. And thank you to all our supporters who showed their support with a Tommy Hough sign.
Local San Diego Media Weighs In on District 6 Race
We received strong media attention over the final month of our effort, including a David Garrick piece in the San Diego Union-Tribune, an appearance on Good Morning San Diego, and a face-off with our opponent on Politically Speaking with Gene Cubbison, giving Tommy an opportunity to discuss his vision for the district, including re-building our broken roads, addressing our city's housing crisis and our opponent's ethical lapses.

Councilmember Cate's Ongoing Ethics Investigation
On Sept. 24, Tommy filed an ethics complaint against Councilmember Cate for late reporting of $7,500 in behested payments from San Diego Gas and Electric. Tommy then received a letter dated Sept. 25 from the city's Ethics Commission acknowledging the complaint. But despite two requests from Tommy and two letters sent to the Ethics Commission from our attorney, we have yet to receive any communication on the status of the investigation, even though the Sept. 25 letter pledged to provide an update within 15 days due to the-then pending election.
