Re: Pursuant to Measure L, local measures should be placed on November ballots, not before
Dear Members of San Diego City Council:
We, the undersigned voting-rights, civil-rights, social-justice, labor and community organizations, request that you honor the will of the voters and refrain from placing local ballot measures on the March 2020 primary election to decide matters that can and should be decided in the November 2020 general election. This will strengthen our democracy and respect the voters’ wishes in overwhelmingly passing Measure L.
On Election Day, San Diegans will have the opportunity to create a lasting legacy for San Diego, and pass Measure G, an initiative to transform the aging Qualcomm Stadium site into a beautiful extension campus and professional quality stadium for San Diego State University. The proposal also includes creating a 90-acre green space, including restoration of the river park, open to the public. This plan comes at no cost to taxpayers.
The June 5 election is right around the corner and San Diegans have the opportunity to elect a new District Attorney.
