Tommy Speaks in Favor of SB 307 at Stop Cadiz Rally
Thank You for Your Support In Our 2018 San Diego City Council Race
Our campaign for city council launched 20 months ago, and as our committee closes, I'm reminded again of how proud I am of our campaign team, and grateful to everyone who ever hoisted a sign, knocked on a door, made a call, told a friend or made a contribution. We were outspent 8 to 1 in the general election, yet we won over 21,500 votes on Election Day – a record for a Democrat in a D-6 race. My final vote total exceeded even that of the winning candidates in the D-4 and D-8 council races. We came up short, but we kept it close – and that's because of you. I am not discouraged.
Times of San Diego Features Gold Coast Drive
Thanks to Times of San Diego for running my piece on the disgraceful state of Gold Coast Drive in Mira Mesa in the wake of this winter's rains, laying bare the city's infrastructure neglect. We've been told again and again plans are underway to rebuild Gold Coast, in part due to my campaign making it an issue, but the emergency is now. The city should declare Gold Coast and other broken Mira Mesa streets like Parkdale, Port Royale and Carroll Rd. emergencies now that our winter storms have further reduced them to shock-breaking holes and soupy gravel unsafe for cars, transit or bicycles.

Our 2018 effort may be over, but from the looks of it you'd never know!

A Stunning Conservation Victory, Years in the Making
The biggest public lands bill in a decade was recently signed into law, and given the anti-conservation, anti-science era we're living in where a snowball in winter passes for "proof" our planet's Climate Crisis is a hoax, the Natural Resources Management Act of 2019 is nothing short of an environmental milestone and worth celebrating. Congratulations to everyone who brought these hard-fought bills to add and expand Wilderness and National Parks over the finish line. Read my full essay here.
