San Diego Councilmember Barbara Bry running for Mayor

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Candidate for Mayor of San Diego, Barbara Bry, stopped by Good Morning San Diego to discuss her platform.

The San Diego City councilmember discussed homelessness, infrastructure, affordable housing and protecting neighborhoods.

Bry also pointed out some policy differences between her and her opponents; Councilmember Scott Sherman and Assemblymember Todd Gloria.

She said San Diego voters are responding favorable to her message like, “it is not common sense to get rid of single family zoning.” Pointing out that Todd Gloria is endorsed by the YIMBY Democratic Club, who are strong supporters of SB 50, the piece of legislation that fortunately failed that would have demolished single family zoning.”

She also said Scott Sherman’s endorsement of the SoccerCity plan is “not common sense.”

Bry also explained her opposition to short term vacation rentals in San Diego’s residential neighborhoods. She pointed out that Todd Gloria has taken campaign contributions from the major AirBnB operators in San Diego, and Scott Sherman “has voted against reasonable legislation.”

Next, Bry hit her opponents on their opposition to her regulation of dockless scooters. She criticized Gloria for authoring “state legislation that exempts scooter riders from needing to wear a helmet” and Sherman for not backing her “reasonable ordinance” to ban them on the boardwalk.
