Republican candidate Matt Gunderson hopes to defeat Catherine Blakespear amid SANDAG scandal
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Three candidates are running for the role of California’s 38th State Senate District: Joe Kerr, Catherine Blakespear, and Matt Gunderson.
Candidate Matt Gunderson joined KUSI’s Logan Byrnes on “Good Evening San Diego” to discuss details of his campaign.
Gunderson has plans to be a bipartisan problem solver, tackling challenges like affordability, homelessness, crime, getting local control, and maintaining a high quality of life.
Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, one of the candidates, is also chair of SANDAG.
Gunderson is hoping that voters won’t promote Blakespear after a scathing audit found rampant abuse of taxpayer dollars by SANDAG officials.
KUSI News has repeatedly reached out to Blakespear to request an interview, but she has declined all of them.
